Pacific Standard Time: Crosscurrents in L.A. Painting and Sculpture, 1950 – 1970

Since Jason Schwartzman/John Baldessari’s head introduced us to the multitudinous exhibited delights now happening across California, we thought we’d take a closer look at Pacific Standard Time’s events and shows calendar. We’ll be picking out a top recommendation each day for those lucky enough to be vaguely west coast and first up is Crosscurrents in L.A. Painting and Sculpture. A research based collection from the the Getty Centre offering “a fundamental reappraisal and reinterpretation of postwar Los Angeles art” and featuring over 50 artists…

It’s a show that encompasses both era and the individual, artists like Ed Ruscha and Vija Clemins have works representing their own extraordinary and broad contribution to the art world within the historical movement of the L.A. art scene.
