State of Mind: New California Art Circa 1970, co-organized by Orange County Museum of Art (OCMA) and UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAM/PFA), is the most comprehensive exhibition to date to focus on Conceptual art and related new genres in both Northern and Southern California during this pivotal period in contemporary art. Featuring more than 150 works of art, the exhibition includes installations, photographs, works on paper, videos and films, artists’ books, extensive performance documentation, and other ephemera. This includes newly discovered work as well as materials culled from archives that have rarely been viewed. State of Mind: New California Art circa 1970 is supported by a grant from the Getty Foundation as part of the unprecedented collaborative initiative Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945–1980.
