Curators’ Essay

Rita Gonzalez and Kris Kuramitsu’s perspectives on the exhibition.

Twenty Years Ago Today celebrates the 20th anniversary of the California Community Foundation’s Fellowships for Visual Artists. Curated by Kris Kuramitsu and Rita Gonzalez, this exhibition illustrates the cultural emergence of the most innovative and exciting visual art made in Los Angeles over the past twenty years through a wide range of practices—painting, sculpture, photography, installation, performance, video and film, and experimental media. Since the fellowships were first awarded in 1988, L.A.’s arts landscape has changed considerably: today, the milieu of the city’s art is receiving increased global recognition.

The California Community Foundation’s Fellowships for Visual Artists are made possible by the J. Paul Getty Trust Fund for the Visual Arts, the Brody Arts Fund, the Atlass Fund, the Joan Palevsky Endowment for the Future of Los Angeles and other CCF funds. Twenty Years Ago Today: Supporting Visual Artists in L.A. has been organized by the California Community Foundation, co-sponsored by the Getty Foundation, and jointly presented with the Japanese American National Museum.
