CALIFORNIA: Adulterated Landscapes and Deflated Icons aims to create a dialogue between artworks that represent a disintegrating California landscape and artworks that portray hollywood-bred iconic figures who have often failed to transcend their aging careers. Within this dialogue are questions of which of these has had the greater influence on the culture itself. Inspired by artists who use their local culture as source material for producing bodies of work, this exhibition is responding to the Getty Research Institutes Pacific Standard Time initiative; a multi-venue exhibition that focuses on postwar art in Los Angeles.
