A New Hope for Lucas Museum in LA 15 MIN, 5 SEC

The Star Wars creator has been looking to build a home for his collection of Narrative Art Museum for several years. And the saga has nearly as many sequels as Star Wars itself. Now Lucas has set his sights back on the West Coast and has pit LA and San Francisco against each other. And he has offered each a design by Ma Yansong. But along the way art critics have been dismissive about the "narrative art" collection itself. We will hear from a San Francisco Chronicle art critic who argues it could just be the "core of a great museum."

Guests:
Ma Yansong, MAD Architects
Eric Garcetti, City of Los Angeles (@MayorOfLA)

The Wangs vs. The World 13 MIN, 17 SEC

Jade Chang is a Los Angeles writer who has just published her first novel. It’s called The Wangs Versus the World and it’s a story of an immigrant family that loses everything in the '08 economic crash and embarks on a life-changing road trip. It's also a very funny and incisive commentary on contemporary art, design and lifestyle, inspired by Chang's experience working at Angeleno magazine.

Guests:
Jade Chang, former West coast editor of Metropolis (@thejadechang)
