Daniel Flaming and Mario Ybarra, Jr. will each talk briefly about their own work before engaging in a conversation about informal economies, art, and the possibilities of developing small business for artists, push cart vendors and short-order cooks.
Daniel Flaming has been president of the Economic Roundtable since 1991. Before that he worked for Los Angeles County, coordinating delinquency prevention, managing community development and affordable housing programs, and administering job training and research programs. He has a Ph.D. in urban studies and has led more than 50 research projects at the Roundtable.
Mario Ybarra, Jr. is a founding member of the artists’ collective Slanguage. His work has been featured in a number of institutional exhibitions, recently including Alien Nation at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, and Uncertain States of America, curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, as part of the California Biennial at the Orange County Museum of Art.
