> DESCRIPTION

Join Adjunct Curator Constance M. Lewallen for an insightful introduction to State of Mind: New California Art circa 1970, which highlights the originality and inventiveness of artists working in both Southern and Northern California in the late 1960s and early 1970s and investigates their vital contributions to Conceptual art and experimental practices.

Have you ever heard the sound of ice melting? State of Mind: New California Art circa 1970, part of Pacific Standard Time, offers an in-depth exploration of Conceptual art made by both Northern and Southern California artists during a pivotal period in contemporary art. The more than 150 works of art on display—many rarely seen or newly discovered—are organized by themes, such as the street, the body, politics, private/public space, and language/wordplay, that elucidate this dynamic era in our history and foreshadow the concerns of young artists working today.
