Series 5: Exhibitions and Programs , 1974-1987
(Boxes 3-13; 9.5 linear feet)

Found within this series are the records documenting LAICA's exhibition and public programming. Exhibition Committee Files and Exhibition Files provide comprehensive documentation of LAICA's exhibition history, including exhibitions curated by LAICA staff and notable guest curators Walter Hopps, Llyn Foulks, and Mike Kelley. Focusing on broad and varied contemporary visual arts, the exhibitions included established and emerging artists of the Los Angeles area, the West Coast, Europe, and Asia. Contemporary Italian and Japanese artists were widely exhibited. Contemporary social and environmental issues were also covered in exhibitions, such as The James Bay Project, which documented the impact of hydroelectric stations in northwestern Quebec.
Extensive files are found for several significant LAICA exhibitions, such as Nine Senior California Painters, 1974-1975, which featured the work of Florence Arnold, Nick Brigante, Hans Burkhardt, Annita Delano, Lorser Feitelson, Peter Krasnow, Helen Lundeberg, John McLaughlin, and Emerson Woelffer, an exhibition of Leroy Neiman and Andy Warhol, 1981-1982, Cabin, Temple, Trailer curated by Charles Moore in 1983, Il Modo Italiano, 1984 that featured the work of 10 contemporary Italian artists, and Australia: Nine Contemporary Artists, 1984. The organization provided opportunities for emerging artists as well, including a "painting of the month" exhibition series.
Program Files document LAICA's public programming, including lecture series, workshops, and conferences. This series contains files for innovative fundraising events, such as fashion shows, film screenings, and "LAICA Sells Out", an innovative program that invited donors and artists to purchase portions of LAICA's exhibition space to display their artwork. Extensive documentation of LAICA's Artist Registry of Southern California artists and the CETA-funded Artist-in-Residence program is found here as well.
Also found in this series are LAICA's Artist Files, comprised of printed materials, photographs, and resumes of artists, as well as scattered correspondence.
The Exhibition and Programs series is arranged into 4 subseries:
  • 5.1: Exhibition Committee Files, mid 1970s-1987
