The Getty Foundation announced today that it has awarded $3.1 million in grants to 26 art institutions participating in "Pacific Standard Time," a series of exhibitions that showcase the Los Angeles region's contributions to art following WWII. Museums and galleries from San Diego to Santa Barbara are organizing exhibitions such as "California Art in the Age of Pluralism, 1974-1980" at the Museum of Contemporary Art, "Doin' It in Public: Feminism and Art at the Woman's Building" at Otis College of Art and Design, and "Now Dig This! Art and Black Los Angeles 1960-1980" at the Hammer Museum, "Pacific Standard Time" is designed to illuminate a vibrant art community long overshadowed by its East Coast counterpart.
The exhibition at Otis' Ben Maltz Gallery from Oct 1 - Dec 3, 2011, focuses on the impact of the Woman's Building, a center for feminist art in Southern California from 1973-1981. Curated by Meg Linton, Maltz Director, and Sue Maberry, former Program Director at the Woman's Bldg and Otis Library Director, the project involves scholars from Vanderbuilt Univ, Claremont Grad Univ, Ohio Univ, Rosemont Coll, and Yale Center for British Art.
