Former Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank spent nearly three decades on Capitol Hill, so he knows a thing or two about what presidential elections look like from inside the Washington bubble.

On Tuesday evening, Frank will join journalist, documentary filmmaker and KPFK radio host Ian Masters at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles for a close look at the 2016 election cycle. The talk, “Barney Frank: The Elections One Year Out,” will be live-streamed on this very page starting at 7:30 p.m. PST.

So watch this space. Shortly after the event’s conclusion, we’ll swap out the link below for a recorded video on YouTube from the event, courtesy of the Hammer.
