Overdrive : L.A. constructs the future, 1940-1990( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From 1940 to 1990, Los Angeles rapidly evolved into one of the most populous and influential industrial, economic, and creative capitals in the world. During this era, the region was transformed into a laboratory for cutting-edge architecture. Overdrive: L.A. Constructs the Future, 1940-1990 examines these experiments and their impact on modern design, reframes the perceptions of Los Angeles's dynamic built environment, and amplifies the exploration of the city's vibrant architectural legacy. The drawings, models, and images highlighted in the Overdrive exhibition and catalogue reveal the complex and often underappreciated facets of Los Angeles and illustrate how the metropolis became an internationally recognized destination with a unique design vocabulary, canonical landmarks, and a coveted lifestyle. This investigation builds upon the groundbreaking work of generations of historians, theorists, curators, critics, and activists who have researched and expounded upon the development of Los Angeles. In this volume, thought-provoking essays shed more light on the exhibition's narratives, including Los Angeles's physical landscape, the rise of modernism, the region's influential residential architecture, its buildings for commerce and transportation, and architects' pioneering uses of bold forms, advanced materials, and new technologies. Los Angeles's ability to facilitate change, experiment, recalibrate, and forge ahead is one of its greatest strengths. Future generations are destined to harness the region's enviable resources to create new layers of architectural innovations."--Publisher's description

With contributions from scholars, graduate students, archivists, curators, and filmmakers from three continents, the resulting diverse and multi-voiced collection radically extends film historiography.

Artists & Archives a Pacific Standard Time symposium by Getty Research Institute( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The recording captures a panel of artists and scholars as they explore the ways contemporary artists incorporate archives into their work. In recent decades, artists have become increasingly interested in archives both as inspiration and as an artistic medium. Accumulating and sorting, the same impulses that drive the creation of archives, feed the process of making assemblages and collages. Conceptual and performance art continue to blur the line between art and documentation. Also many artists draw on the archive to revisit and reenact earlier works. This symposium considers how archives not only trace the creative process but also become part of that process and even of the work itself. "Artists and Archives" is presented in conjunction with "Greetings from L.A.: Artists and Publics, 1950-1980," a Pacific Standard Time exhibition rooted in the archival holdings of Getty Research Institute's Special Collections

Clay's Tectonic Shift : John Mason, Ken Price, Peter Voulkos, 1956-1968 oral history interviews by Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Resource comprises transcripts of interviews with artists and art historians conducted by the Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery (Scripps College, Claremont, California) in relation to their 2012 exhibition "Clay's Tectonic Shift: John Mason, Ken Price, Peter Voulkos: 1956-1968." The interviews and exhibition were part of the Los Angeles-based Pacific Standard Time initiative, which was largely sponsored by the Getty. Dr. Mary Davis MacNaughton, director of the Williamson Gallery, described the concept behind the exhibition and catalog as follows: "Mason, Price, and Voulkos changed the conversation in ceramics from craft to art, creating fired-clay sculpture that was unprecedented in ambition and originality. The exhibition presents important works in this development. These three artists were the catalysts for a new ceramic scene and a definitive shift in the way ceramics were understood. From that point until the present day, clay has simply never been viewed in the same way again."

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Resource comprises five video recordings created by the California African American Museum (CAAM) in relation to its 2011-2012 exhibition "Places of Validation, Art & Progression." The exhibition and related interviews were part of Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A., a city-wide research project that focused on the postwar (1945-1980) art scene in Los Angeles. According to a press release from CAAM, the exhibition brought to life "the history of the artists who helped birth one of the most influential art movements of the second half of the 20th century and the validators who supported and enabled them to achieve their goals in spite of the wider conditions of exclusion from the mainstream art presenting community. The perspective of 'Places of Validation, Art & Progression' is on the history and driving forces that made venues and opportunities possible for Black art to be seen while allowing the art to reflect the wide variety of artists, styles, venues and personalities that served the Black arts scene between 1940-1980." The video recordings each run from three to six minutes in length and feature excerpts of interviews with artists and their supporters, as well as images of art works and ephemera.
