The veneer of childhood, memory & pop culture are pulled back in this memory of 60s hippie communes.
SMMoA Book Club: “The Hypocrisy of Disco” by Clane Hayward, Led by Kristine McKennaSanta Monica Museum of Art (2525 Michigan Ave, G-1 Santa Monica, CA 90404) Map it Free
Acclaimed journalist Kristine McKenna leads a discussion around Hayward’s poignant memoir, which chronicles the author’s experiences growing up on hippie communes in the 1960s, and connects it to the works on view. Both Pensato’s painting and Hayward’s prose peel back the colorful veneer of childhood, memory, and pop culture, to reveal the dark undercurrents roiling beneath the surface.
