Schrank, Sarah

Cl. Philadelphia, 2008

Book ID: 79689

Discusses LA's position as an international arts center in the richer context of art controversies and political contests over modern art and art spaces in the twentieth century. Challenging historical accounts that situate the city's origins as an art center in the 1960s, Schrank argues that debates over modernism among artists and civic leaders alike made art a charged political site as early as the 1910s.
