Exhibitions put on by the partner institutions and discussions with the their curators were documented by the Getty Research Institute, through a contract with Tremolo Productions. Material also includes transcripts of interviews; recordings of lectures, symposia, and panel discussions; short documentary films; and printed brochures and announcements related to the project.
