J. Paul Getty Trust Documentation of the Installation of Taste at the Restaurant at the Getty Center

Project Background

The Getty Center opened in 1997 as a multifaceted campus located in Brentwood, California, comprised of modern architecture, gardens, and fountains. It is owned and operated by the J. Paul Getty Trust, a cultural and philanthropic organization. The Trust is a not-for-profit institution, educational in purpose and character, that focuses on the visual arts in all of their dimensions. The Center is home to the Trust and its four programs: the Getty Foundation, the Getty Research Institute, the Getty Conservation Institute, and the J. Paul Getty Museum. The Museum and the Conservation Institute also maintain operations at the Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades, the original site of the Museum.

The Restaurant at the Getty Center is home to a permanent mixed-media installation called Taste, which was designed for the space by artist, Alexis Smith. The J. Paul Getty Trust commissioned the prints, the mural, and the documentation of the installation. The prints were exhibited in the J. Paul Getty Museum prior to their transfer to the Institutional Archives.
