Materials comprise clips and excerpts of audio and video recordings of oral history interviews with over 30 persons conducted by the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) in conjunction with their 2011-2012 exhibition "The Experimental Impulse" shown at REDCAT. According to promotional material released by CalArts, the exhibition explored "the pivotal role of experimentation in Los Angeles in the years immediately following the city's emergence as a vital artistic center . . . [and offered] new insights into the understanding of developments in critical art practice after 1965 . . ." The exhibition and related interviews were part of Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. a research project that focused on the postwar (1945-1980) art scene in Los Angeles.
The interviews focus on "a selection of key figures who shaped the city's cultural landscape through various forms of patronage and artist-motivated initiatives. The exhibition includes original interviews with such individuals as Robert Smith, founding director of the Los Angeles Institute of Contemporary Art (1974-85); Dorit Cypis, co-director of Foundation for Art Resources (1979-82); Marc Pally, first director of LACE (1979-83); Gemini G.E.L. co-founder and patron Stanley Grinstein; collectors Judy and Stuart Spence; and many others."
