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
5.2: Exhibition Files, 1974-1987
5.3: Program Files, 1975-1986
5.4: Artist Files, circa 1980s
5.1:Exhibition Committee Files, mid 1970s-1987
Records of the Exhibitions Committee include meeting minutes, proposed exhibition schedules, policies, exhibition budgets, lists of exhibitions, and scattered correspondence. Also included is a list of LAICA's library holdings and video acquisitions.

5.2:Exhibition Files, 1974-1987
LAICA's exhibition files are comprehensive and form the bulk of this collection. However, the extent of documentation for each exhibition varies - most are represented with one or two folders, although a few have numerous folders of documentation. Each exhibition file may contain a wide variety of materials, typically budgets; correspondence with artists, curators, and organizers; grant applications; loan agreements; and resumes. Visual documentation includes photographs, contact sheets, and negatives of artwork, installation views, and events. The file for
Lecto Divina
also contains audio documentation. Files also include printed materials such as press releases, clippings, announcements and invitations, and catalogs. Of special interest are questionnaires completed by ceramicists working in California which were collected for the exhibition
Foundations In Clay
. Files for proposed, but unrealized, exhibitions are also found here.
Exhibition Files have been arranged chronologically by date of exhibition opening. Proposed exhibition files are filed under "P". For preservation housing, slides from the exhibition files have been removed and are now housed in Series 8, Slides. Photographs, however, have not been separated and remain within the exhibition files.
