“California Video” at the Getty: Preserving Cultural Archives

“California Video” runs from March 15 to June 8, 2008, at the Getty Center in Los Angeles. I’ve taken a special interest in the exhibition because it was instigated by the Getty’s acquisition of the Long Beach Museum of Art’s video collection, which I managed in the mid-1990s as LBMA’s video archivist. The impressive show “reveals the variety of artistic experimentation that has occurred in the video medium throughout California over the last 40 years.” For my reflections on the opening, please see “Transforming California Video: A Change of Address.”
