 Title:  Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. recordings  
 Dates:  2008-2012 
 Abstract:  The collection principally comprises recordings produced from 2008 through 2012 as part of the Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. project. Project participants, including the Getty itself, conducted an extensive series of oral histories with many of Los Angeles' key artists, filmmakers, curators, collectors, and critics, focusing on postwar art (1945-1980). Many of the participating cultural institutions received funding from the Getty Foundation, which collected the resulting interviews. 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.

 Title:  Barbara T. Smith papers  
 Dates:  1927-2012, undated, bulk 1948-2012 
 Abstract:  Barbara Turner Smith (American, born 1931) is one of the most influential figures in the history of performance and feminist art in Southern California. Her work – which has taken the varied forms of painting, drawing, installation, video, performance, and artists' books, and often involves her own body – explores concepts that strike at the core of human nature, including male and female sexuality, physical and spiritual sustenance, ecology, technology, and death. The archive, which offers an exceptionally rich resource for Smith's highly personal artistic practice, contains 160 diaries, 54 sketchbooks, hundreds of drawings, more than 850 vintage prints, thousands of negatives and contact sheets, approximately 90 films and 1100 audio and video tapes, in addition to all the notes, plans, and archival records related to her artistic projects from her student days forward. The archive encompasses not only Smith's career as an artist, but also her work as a writer, teacher, and advocate of the arts in Los Angeles.

4Creator/Collector:  Waitresses (Group of artists)
Requires cookie*
 Title:  The Waitresses records  
 Dates:  1971-2015, undated 
 Abstract:  The Waitresses was one of the first performance art groups to emerge from the Los Angeles Woman's Building. Founded in 1977 by Jerri Allyn and Anne Gauldin, the group used their collective experiences working as waitresses to explore feminist issues such as sex discrimination and wage inequality in the food service industry. Materials in the collection document the performances produced by the group from 1976 to 1985, as well as American Dining: A Working Woman's Movement, a performance produced by Jerri Allyn from 1986 to 1989. Materials also relate to a 25th anniversary re-staging of five performances in 2007, as well as other exhibitions and publications about The Waitresses after 1985. The collection consists of performance notes, scripts, costumes, photographs, press clippings, props and ephemera, research files related to social issues in the food service industry, and audiovisual recordings related to various performances and exhibitions.
