Pacific Standard Time: Conceptual art at OCMA

by John Rabe | Off-Ramp

Julian Bermudez (L) and Zack Flores engage in a conceptual art piece at OCMA's State of Mind: New California Art circa 1970. John Rabe

Conceptual art is as much, or more, about the process of experiencing (making, looking at, thinking about, documenting) art as the art object itself. And SoCal, not weighed down by the strictures and structures of the art establishment, was a hotbed of conceptual art. It's the focus of the Orange County Museum of Art's Pacific Standard Time entry, State of Mind: New California Art Circa 1970. Off-Ramp host John Rabe talked with artist Al Ruppersberg, a surprise guest, and OCMA's co-curator, Karen Moss. (The exhibit closes January 22d, so go see it now!)
