This show is 18th Street’s contribution to the Getty Foundations Pacific Standard Time Art in LA 1945-1980 initiative Collaboration Labs: investigates five artists and artists groups that have been central to the alternative artist space movement in Southern California since the early 1970s. These makers and collectives - Rachel Rosenthal, Barbara T. Smith, Suzanne Lacy/Leslie Labowitz-Starus, Kit Galloway/Sherrie Rabinowitz, and EZTV - have all been involved in collaboration within their own work, as well as with the founding of key artist-run spaces in the Los Angeles region.  Through its wealth of documentation, video, photography, and performance - much of it never before seen - this exhibit traces how these diverse art practices were in dialogue with the growing movement of independent art spaces throughout the 1970s and 1980s.
