The Centre Pompidou will be hosting a major exhibition on the artistic scene of Los Angeles from 1955 to 1985. There will be approximately 350 works on show by 85 artists.

Los Angeles is the first exhibition on this scale that aims to demonstrate the importance and specific characteristics of an artistic context yet to be discovered. The Los Angeles artistic scene is unique in its multiform nature and in its continuous renewal of aesthetics and artists. Art here is inspired by the complexity of this ville-monde or megalopolis in which underground movements mix with popular Californian culture, with its community expression as with the world of its dream machines of Hollywood and Disneyland.

This exhibition retraces the history of the Los Angeles artistic scene through a large selection of paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, film and video, from its appearance around the middle of the 50s to the dawn of a new generation of artists in the middle of the 80s.
