Series II.  Crosscurrents in L.A.: Painting and Sculpture, 1950-1970 exhibition audio, 2011

Physical Description: 0.3 linear feet (1 shared box and 3 enclosures)

Scope and Content Note

Materials principally comprise interviews with curators/art historians that were actively involved with the Getty's Modern Art in Los Angeles and Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. initiatives. These projects were sponsored by the Getty to locate, collect, document, and preserve the art historical record of Los Angeles' vibrant postwar art scene. Between October 2011 and February 2012, a major exhibition at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Crosscurrents in L.A.: Painting and Sculpture, 1950-1970, presented a survey of postwar painting and sculpture in Los Angeles, accompanied by a book that is at once an exhibition catalog and an overview of postwar art history in Southern California. These interviews were conducted to provide short audio clips for public visitors to enjoy while they viewed corresponding works in the exhibition.

Arrangement note

Materials are arranged alphabetically by title.

Access Information

Materials are open and available to qualified researchers. Use copies exist for most recordings. Original recordings and duplication masters are restricted.
