Meet LA’s 2018 MacArthur ‘Geniuses’

Hosted by and

This year’s MacArthur “Genius” grants are out. The five-year grants are for people who show “exceptional creativity” and potential in their work. They each get $625,000 to pursue their projects, no strings attached. A few of them are based in Los Angeles: neuroscientist Doris Tsao, playwright Dominique Morisseau, and music composer Matthew Aucoin.
