American Museum of Ceramic Art: "Common Ground: Ceramics in Southern California 1945-1975," 2009-2010

Common Ground audio online

Physical Description: 0.4 linear feet (1 box: 11 optical discs; 2.6 GB)

Scope and Content Note

Materials comprise audio recordings of oral history interviews conducted in 2009 and 2010 by the American Museum of Ceramic Art in conjunction with their 2011-2012 exhibition, "Common Ground: Ceramics in Southern California 1945-1975." The exhibition examined both the cohesiveness and the diversification found within the Los Angeles-area, post-World War II clay community. The exhibition and related interviews were part of the Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. project; the project website describes the exhibition as follows: "The decades following World War II saw tremendous growth and experimentation in studio and industrial ceramics. Artist Millard Sheets (1907-1989), a leading educator and designer, exerted considerable influence on a multitude of Los Angeles-area art institutions. Sheets' strongly-held concept of 'good design' acted as a catalyst in forming ceramic practices and opinions about art, interiors, and architecture."
Please note that although a video interview was conducted with Betty Davenport Ford, the disc received by the Getty Institutional Archives was not readable and the interview is therefore not listed here with the AMOCA materials. Audio excerpts and an unedited transcript from the Ford interview can be found below in the Huntington Library materials related to the exhibition, "The House that Sam Built."

Arrangement note

Materials are arranged alphabetically by the surname of the interviewee.

Access Information

The recordings exist solely in digital format (discs that were transferred to the Archives on optical discs). The discs act as archival masters and are therefore restricted. The recordings are open to researchers are available online.

Armory Center for the Arts: "Speaking in Tongues: The Art of Wallace Berman and Robert Heinecken, 1961-1976," 2009-2010

Speaking in Tongues audio and transcripts online

Physical Description: 0.4 linear feet (1 box: 18 optical discs; 1.7 GB)

Scope and Content Note

Material comprises recordings and transcripts of interviews conducted by the Armory Center for the Arts in relation to its 2011 exhibition, "Speaking in Tongues: The Art of Wallace Berman and Robert Heinecken." The interviews and exhibition were part of the Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. project. According to a press release from the Armory Center, "this exhibition examines how these two artists bridged modernist and emerging post-modernist trends by ushering in the use of photography as a key element of contemporary avant-garde art. Focusing on language and the creation of new visual codes, as well as on the little-known friendship between Berman and Heinecken, their works are explored within the unique cultural milieu of 1960s and 1970s Southern California, as it fueled and amplified each artist's highly original creative approach to making images."

California African American Museum: "Places of Validation, Art & Progression," circa 2011

Places of Validation videos online

Physical Description: 0.1 linear feet (1 enclosure: 5 optical discs; 1.1 GB)

Scope and Content Note

Resource comprises five video recordings created by the California African American Museum (CAAM) in relation to its 2011-2012 exhibition "Places of Validation, Art & Progression." The exhibition and related interviews were part of Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A., a city-wide research project that focused on the postwar (1945-1980) art scene in Los Angeles. According to a press release from CAAM, the exhibition brought to life "the history of the artists who helped birth one of the most influential art movements of the second half of the 20th century and the validators who supported and enabled them to achieve their goals in spite of the wider conditions of exclusion from the mainstream art presenting community. The perspective of 'Places of Validation, Art & Progression' is on the history and driving forces that made venues and opportunities possible for Black art to be seen while allowing the art to reflect the wide variety of artists, styles, venues and personalities that served the Black arts scene between 1940-1980."
The video recordings each run from three to six minutes in length and feature excerpts of interviews with artists and their supporters, as well as images of art works and ephemera. The interviews are undated, but were probably conducted in 2011.

The exhibition at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery was "a chronological survey examining the role of civic government in relationship to the development of arts in Los Angeles traced through painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, photography, and film," while the exhibition at the Watts Towers was "a chronological survey examining the development of this important grass-roots arts space into an established, nationally-recognized, community arts center."
The interviews were primarily conducted by Pilar Tompkins Rivas and focus on the development, restoration, administration, and activities of the Watts Towers Arts Center and the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery from the perspective of individuals actively involved with the institutions.

Physical Description: 0.3 linear feet (1 enclosure: printed transcripts. 1 shared box: 9 optical discs; 28.7 GB)

Scope and Content Note

Materials comprise video recordings and transcripts of oral history interviews conducted by the Japanese American National Museum (JANM) in conjunction with their 2011-2012 exhibition, "Drawing the Line: Japanese American Art, Design and Activism in Post-War Los Angeles." The exhibition explored "the changing notions of identity and community in Post-War Japanese American Los Angeles, from the 1950s to the early 1980s. Art and activism combine and are redefined through landmark works by a diverse group of exceptional artists and designers."
The interviews were conducted with a broad group of artists, whose specialities include visual art, performing art, filmmaking, graphic design, and automotive design. Interviews were also conducted with founders of Gidra, a creative UCLA student newspaper (1969-1974), sometimes called "The Voice of the Asian American Movement," that focused on political advocacy and Asian American identity. The exhibition and related interviews were part of Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A., a city-wide research project that focused on the postwar (1945-1980) art scene in Los Angeles.
The material also includes one video recording of "What Can a Song Do?" (January 24, 2012) featuring Nobuko Miyamoto (aka Joanne Miya), Japanese American actress, dancer, performance artist, and activist. The performance was presented at LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions) in collaboration with JANM as part of the Pacific Standard Time Performance and Public Art Festival. The performance was presented in conjunction with "Drawing the Line." Along with William "Charlie" Chin and the late Chris Ijima, Miyamoto created the group Yellow Pearl, which recorded the musical album "A Grain of Sand: Music for the Struggle of Asians in America" in 1973. The 2012 "What Can a Song Do?" performance was referred to as the "Yellow Pearl Remix" concert, and along with Nobuko Miyamoto, featured Benny Yee, Danny Yamamoto, Atomic Nancy, Chucky Kim, Traci Kato-Kiriyama, Ruben Guevara, Tatsuo Hirano, Kathy Masaoka, Sean Miura and Kamau Ayubbi. It was directed by Dan Kwong with visuals by Tran Bui.

Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions: "Los Angeles Goes Live: Performance Art in Southern California 1970-1983," 2009-2011

Los Angeles Goes Live audio online,

Physical Description: 0.1 (1 shared box: 4 optical discs; 3 GB)

Scope and Content Note

Resource comprises audio recordings and transcripts of oral history interviews conducted by Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE) in relation to its 2011-2012 exhibition, "Los Angeles Goes Live: Performance Art in Southern California, 1970-1983." The exhibition featured performance art documentation such as costumes, props, photographs, artist books, video, scripts, scores, and posters representing a variety of performance artists and approaches. The project also included a performance series and publication that explored the histories and legacies of performance art. The exhibition and related interviews were part of Pacific Standard Time, a city-wide project that documented the post-war art scene in Los Angeles.
The concurrent performance series featured "re-inventions of historical performances and new performative actions staged throughout" Los Angeles. The exhibition and performances examined "a central issue at the core of performance art practice and scholarship: How can one revisit performance art after the fact? Through documentation? Through restaging the work by the original artist? Through a contemporary reinvention by another?"
The exhibition and performances/interviews? were part of Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A., a city-wide project that focused on the postwar (1945-1980) art scene in Los Angeles.

Physical Description: 1.6 linear feet (4 boxes: 92 optical discs; 204.1 GB)

Scope and Content Note

Los Angeles Filmforum's project, "Alternative Projections: Experimental Film in Los Angeles 1945-1980," focused on the community of filmmakers, artists, curators and programmers who contributed to the creation and presentation of experimental film and video in Southern California in the postwar era. Filmforum's 2011 exhibition was a series of film screenings at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, as well as several collaborative screenings with other cultural organizations. L.A. Filmforum's project included film screenings, oral history interviews, and symposia, and was part of the Los Angeles-based Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. initiative. A few of the oral history interview video recordings (DVDs) were not playable when the Getty received them from Filmforum. Although these few video recordings are unavailable thorough the Getty, the transcripts for all Filmforum recordings are available in their entirety.
Materials date from 2009 to 2010 and include video recordings of public panel discussions/symposia as well as video recordings and transcripts of interviews with individuals from the Los Angeles postwar filmmaking community.

Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery: "Clay's Tectonic Shift: John Mason, Ken Price, Peter Voulkos: 1956-1968," 2009-2011

Clay's Tectonic Shift transcripts online

Physical Description: (electronic resource; 2 MB)

Scope and Content Note

Resource comprises transcripts of interviews with artists and art historians conducted by the Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery (Scripps College, Claremont, California) in relation to their 2012 exhibition "Clay's Tectonic Shift: John Mason, Ken Price, Peter Voulkos: 1956-1968." The interviews and exhibition were part of Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A., a city-wide project that focused on the postwar (1945-1980) art scene in Los Angeles.
Dr. Mary Davis MacNaughton, director of the Williamson Gallery, described the concept behind the exhibition and catalog: "Mason, Price, and Voulkos changed the conversation in ceramics from craft to art, creating fired-clay sculpture that was unprecedented in ambition and originality. The exhibition presents important works in this development. These three artists were the catalysts for a new ceramic scene and a definitive shift in the way ceramics were understood. From that point until the present day, clay has simply never been viewed in the same way again."

UCLA Film and Television Archive: L.A. Rebellion, 2010-2011

L.A. Rebellion transcripts and videos online

Physical Description: 0.8 linear feet (1 box: 1 hard drive; 1.1 TB)

Scope and Content Note

Materials comprise video recordings and transcripts of oral history interviews conducted as part of UCLA Film and Television Archive's L.A. Rebellion initiative. The material documents the story, the artists and the work of a group of African and African-American students who entered the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television in the 1960s, "in the aftermath of the Watts Uprising and against the backdrop of the continuing Civil Rights Movement and the escalating Vietnam War," as part of an "Ethno-Communications" initiative. According to the L.A. Rebellion website, the Ethno Communications initiative was "designed to be responsive to communities of color (also including Asian, Chicano and Native American communities). These mostly unheralded artists created a unique cinematic landscape, as (over the course of two decades) students arrived, mentored one another and passed the torch to the next group."
The L.A. Rebellion initiative began as part of the Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. project, which focused on the post World War II art scene in Los Angeles from 1945-1980. Since then, "dozens of filmmakers have been identified as part of the L.A. Rebellion movement and the initiative has grown into a massive effort by all departments of the Archive to bring to light the contributions of these first generations of Black UCLA film students."
Interviews were conducted by Allyson Field, Jacqueline Stewart, Jan-Christian Horak, Tony Best, Robyn Charles, Shannon Kelley, and Zeinabu irene Davis.

USC Fisher Museum of Art: "Sight Specific: LACPS and the Politics of Community," 2011

Sight Specific: LACPS video online

Physical Description: 0.1 linear feet (1 shared box: 1 optical disc; 1.1 GB)

Scope and Content Note

Resource comprises a video recording of oral history interviews conducted by the USC Fisher Museum of Art (University of Southern California) in relation to their 2012 exhibition, "Sight Specific: LACPS and the Politics of Community." The exhibition explored the role that the Los Angeles Center for Photographic Studies (LACPS) played in fostering the photographic community in Los Angeles in the late 1970s and early 1980s. According to promotional material released at the time of the exhibition, the aim of the exhibition was to contextualize "the personalities, programs, and impact of the Los Angeles Center for Photographic Studies by reconstructing selections from the organization's exhibitions from 1974 to 1985." It went on to say that "Sight Specific" explored "how LACPS as an organization attempted to frame the discussion of contemporary issues surrounding photographic practice, and ultimately, how the organization set the stage for the future of image-making within and beyond Southern California."
The exhibition and related interviews were part of Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A., a city-wide project that focused on the postwar (1945-1980) art scene in Los Angeles. The video recording captures interviews with persons actively involved with LACPS: Suda House, former president; Robert Glenn Ketchum, former president; Sheila Pinkel, organizer; Deborah Irmas, curator; and Howard Spector, former director.

Access Information

The recording exists solely in digital format (resource was transferred to the Archives on an optical disc). The disc acts as an archival master and is therefore restricted. Resource is open to researchers and is available online.
