a house painted gold

On this episode, we visit a humble house on a winding road in the hills of Los Angeles where a group of artists turn one family’s mortgage default and foreclosure story into a lens for looking at a larger problem. With “A Notorious Possession”, artist Olga Koumoundouros squats the abandoned house across the street, paints it gold, and holds economic justice parties.

We wrap up the show with a tribute to Igor Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring”.  Our arts editor Jesse Lerner reads from a first-hand account of the premier performance, 100 years ago in Paris. The ballet, inspired by pagan vernal equinox rituals, was so ill-received on first-performance that it inspired outbursts and boo’s loud enough to drown out the entire orchestra. The Rite of Spring will be performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic on September 28th: http://www.laphil.com/tickets/dudamels-rite-of-spring/2012-09-28.
