Youth culture in Los Angeles is often represented by carefree surfer dudes, or bubbly teenage girls hitting the mall.
But one art show in East LA is putting a new perspective on what it means to be a young Angeleno.
Tastemakers/Earthshakers: Notes from Los Angeles Youth Culture, 1943-2016, explores how young Latinos have forged their own spaces and identities across time.
Fashion displays, videos and music, and even old issues of beloved publications like Street Beat magazine bring to life decades of Latino youth culture, from the pachucos and pachucas of the 1940s, to the party crew scene of the 1980s and 1990s.
Some artists even speculate about what the future could hold for LA's young Latinos.
Host A Martinez got a preview of the exhibit with Pilar Tompkins Rivas, director of the Vincent Price Museum at East Los Angeles College. He also spoke with Guadalupe Rosales. She's the creator of the popular Instagram account, Veteranas and Rucas, and one of the artists in the show.
