DESCRIPTION
Building B3
During the 1960s and 70s photographer Malcolm Lubliner documented his experiences and friendships in the Los Angeles art scene with images of Larry Bell, Wallace Berman, Sam Francis and others in their studios and at gallery openings. These photographs were featured in Craig Krull Galleryʼs 1996 exhibition (and corresponding catalog) “Photographing the L.A. Art Scene 1955-1975.” Lublinerʼs photographs have been collected by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C.. The exhibition “Pacific Party Time” consists of candid photographs of artists such as John Baldessari, Robert Irwin and John Altoon attending the soirees of Betty Asher, Louise Bernstein, Stanley and Elyse Grinstein, and Ken Tyler. It was at these gatherings that LA artists were first introduced to important artists from around the world. As gallerist Patricia Faure said, “We suddenly became hosts to artists from New York and Europe... all connecting with our LA artists.” Lublinerʼs work is being used in promotional catalogues and advertisements for Pacific Standard Time: Art in LA 1945-1980.
