A Confederacy of Heretics Symposium: Keynote address (June 14, 2013)39:31

Thom Mayne outlines elements of the cultural context of the 1979 Architecture Gallery exhibit and lectures. While there was a shift from optimism to crisis after Martin Luther King, Jr's assassination, there was also the development of alternatives. Mayne stresses how architects and artists in Los Angeles explored through drawing and making. Coy Howard's keynote address takes the form of a performance involving two toy trains, an audiofile, and a harmonica.
