History of Fellows of Contemporary Art:
For the past three decades, the Fellows of Contemporary Art has underwritten exhibitions and collaborated with museums, galleries, and exhibition spaces to showcase and document innovative work in a variety of media. Through their Curators Awards, they have sponsored more than thirty-five exhibitions at over forty venues nation-wide, enabling arts professionals to present a wide range of shows, including the recent landmark exhibition Thing: New Sculpture from Los Angeles at the Hammer Museum at UCLA (2005); Topographies, San Francisco Art Institute and Pasadena Museum of California Art (2004); Whiteness, A Wayward Construction, Laguna Art Museum (2003); Eleanor Antin, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (1999); and James Turrell: Occluded Front, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (1986). For each exhibition, FOCA has worked with curators and artists to produce a fully illustrated, scholarly catalogue.
Originally founded as a support group for the Pasadena Museum of Modern Art, FOCA evolved into an independent philanthropic organization when the Pasadena Museum became the Norton Simon Museum of Art in 1975. Since then, the group has been dedicated to supporting the development of new art and to encouraging the public recognition of contemporary California artists.
