David Pagel EST-3: South California in New York: Los Angeles Art From the Beth Rudin DeWoody Collection

Parrish Art Museum, 4 March - 17 June 2012

EST–3 focuses on Los Angeles art in the New York collection of Beth Rudin DeWoody. Its title (Eastern Standard Time Minus Three) is a playful rejoinder to Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980, a Getty-initiated series of more than 60 exhibitions across Southern California that examines the emergence of Los Angeles as an art center. Starting on the opposite end of the country, and looking across three time zones, EST–3 avoids the tempestuousness of local dramas and the hyperbole of hometown boosterism to present a cool, wide-ranging view of art made in Los Angeles over a 40-year period of unprecedented development.
