Oxy Arts Speaker Series: Justin Chon in Choi Auditorium on Feb. 26, 2018.<br />
Justin Chon is a filmmaker and actor. His second feature film, the provocatively titled “Gook,” is a look at the 1992 riots in Los Angeles from the perspective of the Korean American community. The story is based on the experiences of Chon’s own family as store owners at that time. The film was released on August 18, 2017.<br />
The Oxy Arts Speaker Series brings five multidisciplinary LA-based artists to Occidental College to engage our community in conversation about their art, their inspirations, and why they do what they do in Los Angeles today. All lectures take place in Choi Auditorium, and are free and open the the public.<br />
