Notes: Processing Information: The Art and Technology records were initially processed in 2006 by Sarah Sherman, who rehoused the papers, created the series arrangement, and made a complete inventory. In 2010, with grant funding from the Getty Foundation's special initiative "Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980," Suzanne Noruschat wrote the descriptive notes and prepared the finding aid under the supervision of Jessica Gambling.
Media coverage of the Art and Technology program is available in bound volumes of press clippings in the Balch Research Library at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art: N582.L7 A86 1970 (January-May); N582.L7 A86 1971 (volume 3). Also available online and in the Balch Research Library is the now out-of-print report on the Art and Technology program: http://collectionsonline.lacma.org/mweb/archives/artandtechnology/at_home.asp Tuchman, Maurice.

Abstract:

The Modern Art Department, Art and Technology records, covering 2.5 linear feet, comprise a major portion of the program's documentation held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. While much of the information contained in these records is included in the published Report on the Art and Technology Program at LACMA 1967-1971, by curators Maurice Tuchman and Jane Livingston, a rich range of materials provides insight into the program's planning and execution, and into the experiences of those artists and companies who participated. These materials include administrative files, correspondence, curatorial notes and drafts of essays on artists, transcripts of artist interviews, and some sketches and photographs of artworks created by artists-in-residence. Series I Administrative consists mostly of documents created in preparation for and to publicize the Art and Technology program, including progress reports noting the arrangements being made between artists and corporations and a brochure announcing the purpose and goals of the program. Series II Corporate Participants and Contributors encompasses a scant amount of materials on only one of the thirty-seven companies that sponsored the Art and Technology program, the Lockheed Aircraft Corporation which hosted the artist R.B. Kitaj. Also included in this series are letters from Marilyn "Missy" Chandler, wife of Los Angeles Times' publisher Otis Chandler, who solicited corporate support on behalf of LACMA. Additional information on corporate sponsors appears sporadically in the artist files comprising Series III. Series III Artists includes files on thirty-one of the seventy-six artists who either were invited, or submitted proposals, to participate in the Art and Technology program, including John Chamberlain, Robert Irwin, Rockne Krebs, Roy Lichtenstein, Jackson MacLow, Claes Oldenburg, Jules Olitski, Eduardo Paolozzi, Robert Rauschenberg, Tony Smith, Karlheinz Stockhausen, James Turrell, Victor Vasarely, and Andy Warhol. These files contain (where noted) correspondence between artists, LACMA curators, and corporate personnel, artist statements and proposals, curatorial notes and drafts of essays written for A Report on the Art and Technology Program, transcriptions of interviews and conversations with artists, photographs of artists resident at corporations, and drawings, photographs, and negatives of artists' works. A file containing a 2007 statement by Channa Horwitz (formerly Channa Davis), the only female artist whose proposal was included in A Report on the Art and Technology Program, was added to the collection.

The Art and Technology program was initiated at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) in 1967, when curator Maurice Tuchman proposed the idea of formulating a relationship between contemporary artists and high-tech corporations that would lead to experiments conjoining art and industry and possibly produce new works of art. The program attracted the participation of some of the most renowned artists of the period--Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Claes Oldenburg, and Robert Irwin, to name just a few--who were paired with "Patron Sponsors" who hosted some of the artists at corporate facilities and in some cases collaborated on projects. In March 1970, several works resulting from these pairings were shown in the American Pavilion at Expo '70 (the world's fair in Osaka, Japan) and in an exhibition at LACMA from May 16 to August 29, 1971. This archive consists of documentation relating to the Art and Technology program, including correspondence between LACMA curators, artists, and corporate participants, notes and drafts of essays written for a report on the A&T Program by curators Jane Livingston and Tuchman, transcriptions of interviews and conversations with artists, and drawings, photographs, and negatives of artists' works.
