Note Published on the occasion of an exhibition of the same name organized by ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives at the USC Libraries and presented simultaneously at the ONE Gallery, West Hollywood, and MOCA Pacific Design Center, West Hollywood, California, September 9-December 31, 2017.
"Axis Mundo is presented in collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, as a part of the Getty-led Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative"--Title page verso.
Summary Working between the 1960s and early 1990s, the artists profiled in this compendium represent a broad cross section of L.A.'s art scene. With nearly 400 illustrations and ten essays, this volume presents histories of artistic experimentation and reveals networks of collaboration and exchange that resulted in some of the most intriguing art of late 20th-century America. From "mail art" to the rise of Chicano, gay, and feminist print media; the formation of alternative spaces to punk music and performance; fashion culture to the AIDS crisis-the artists and works featured here comprise a boundary-pushing network of voices and talents.
