An enthralling and historical look at the emergence of cutting-edge contemporary art in Southern California. Through the unwavering vision of a devoted few, the exploding Los Angeles art community of the 1960s was harnessed and internationally exposed. From Frank Stella paintings to Ed Keinholz installations and Duchamp to John Cage, Los Angeles was on fire and no one in the art world expected to find such a revolution in a place like this. Radical Past, takes a long overdue look at this pivotal period of art and music in Southern California while unearthing a collection painstakingly put together for the now defunct but once stellar Pasadena Art Museum. The Armory Center for the Arts and Art Center College of Design joined forces with curator Jay Belloli to bring this all encompassing exhibition and catalogue to fruition. More than 100 artist biographies, multiple essays and endless color reproductions are featured.

Five Southern California arts organizations have joined forces this year to present a four-venue art exhibition and musical concert series honoring artists and composers active in Pasadena between 1960 and 1974. The resulting catalog documents the fits and starts of L.A.'s initially unpretentious modern art scene, from the Mark Tobey retrospective in 1960 to Norton Simon's accession of the Pasadena Art Museum in 1974. In the essays portion, four curators paint impressionistic and anecdotal sketches of area artists and musicians, local building initiatives, nascent community support, and seminal events (such as Leonard Stein's modern music Encounters series and the Richard Serra retrospective in 1970). Reproductions of works by over 100 avant-garde artists are supplemented by helpful biographical sections and a chronology. Although small, the color art reproductions offer a tantalizing taste of Southern California's multiflavored modernist smorgasbord. Almost as good as visiting the museums themselves, this book is recommended for regional libraries of all sizes and collections strong in 20th-century U.S. art.ARussell T.
