The Experimental Impulse

Presented as part of the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time (PST) project to document and understand the history of art and design in Southern California, The Experimental Impulse explores the pivotal role of experimentation in Los Angeles in the years immediately following the city’s emergence as a vital artistic center. The exhibition offers new insights into the understanding of developments in critical art practice after 1965 and bridges the gap between these histories and more recent approaches to artmaking.
