Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. Recordings, 2008-2012

Scope and Content of Collection

The collection principally comprises audio and video recordings produced from 2008 through 2012 as part of the Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. project (PST). 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.

The materials in the first series principally comprise oral history interviews conducted by PST partner institutions from 2008 through 2012. Project organizers conducted an extensive series of oral histories with many of Los Angeles' key artists, filmmakers, curators, collectors, and critics. Many of the participating organizations were awarded funds by the Getty Foundation, which received the resulting interviews as part of the grant requirement.

Materials in the second series principally comprise 2008-2012 audiovisual recordings of oral history interviews, public conversations, symposia, lectures, and recorded exhibition content created/initiated by the Getty as part of its PST initiative. The Getty Research Institute recorded the majority of these interviews and events to document and preserve the art historical record of Los Angeles from 1945 to 1980. A few short audio clips were also conducted for inclusion in a 2011-2012 exhibition at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Crosscurrents in L.A.: Painting and Sculpture, 1950-1970. The clips were intended for public visitors to enjoy while they viewed corresponding works in the exhibition.

Materials in the third series comprise audio and videos produced by Tremolo Productions, which was commissioned by the Getty Research Institue to visually capture the exhibitions at PST partner institutions across Southern California and conduct interviews of their curators, institutional leaders, and exhibiting artists.

Arrangement

Records are organized into three series: Series I. Getty Foundation funded Pacific Standard Time oral histories, 2008-2012; Series II. Getty produced Pacific Standard Time audio recordings, 2011; and Series III. Audiovisual documentation of Pacific Standard Time partner institution exhibitions, 2008-2012.
