Materials principally comprise audiovisual recordings of oral history interviews, public conversations, and lectures dating
from 2003-2012, generated by the Getty Research Institute (GRI) through its
Modern Art in Los Angeles and
Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. initiatives. Materials also include supporting documentation for the initiatives, including
interview transcripts, photographs, and ephemera. The interviews and events were conducted to record leading artists, filmmakers,
musicians, curators, and critics as they discuss their contributions to Los Angeles' vibrant postwar (1945-1980) art scene.
The Getty Research Institute (GRI) is a program developed and overseen by the J. Paul Getty Trust. The GRI serves an international
community of scholars and the interested public through special collections of rare materials and digital resources. The GRI
creates and disseminates new knowledge through its active collecting program, public programs, institutional collaborations,
exhibitions, publications, digital services, and residential scholars program.
