Polymode designed Past Due, a report for The Los Angeles Mayor’s Office Civic Memory Working Group. It was made in collaboration with the Huntington-USC Institute on California and the West, with assistance from the J. Paul Getty Trust.
The Working Group’s report, including a print volume and website, was released on April 15, 2021, with 18 key recommendations complemented by subcommittee reports; essays and photo essays; and interviews and round table discussions on significant topics.
The report captures a series of recommendations to help Los Angeles, so long in thrall to its reputation as a city of the future, engage more productively and honestly with its past—especially where that past is fraught or has been buried or whitewashed.
