Examining art-making in California during a tumultuous transitional period, this catalogue accompanying a remarkable exhibition features approximately 125 California artists working in a wide array of media: from installation art to representational painting, from conceptual art to performance art, and from video to photography.

This comprehensive survey examines the fertile and diverse output of California artists during the extraordinary period of American history - the years between Richard Nixon's resignation and Ronald Reagan's election as president. Artists in particular were sensitive to enormous divisions in the country's moods and beliefs.

Penetrating essays by leading art historians, critics and curators explore the history and development of pluralist art practices throughout California; the artists' responses to questions about race, gender, politics and war; and the emergence of new movements and trends such as punk, post-studio art and postmodernism.
