On January 27, The Un-Private Collection talk series presented a lively conversation with artist Thomas Houseago and rock bassist and art collector Flea. Works by Houseago in the Broad collection are currently on display as part of the museum's collection installation, "Creature," through March 19. Houseago's solo exhibition "The Ridge" is on view at Gagosian Beverly Hills through Thursday, February 16. The pair discussed Houseago’s inspirations and practice, and the impact that visual art and music has on each other, among other topics. Both Houseago and Flea handpicked music to play in the theater while the audience took their seats; the playlists are audible before the talks begins.
