State of Mind: New California Art circa 1970 opens on June 23, 2013, at the Bronx Museum of the Arts, the only East Coast venue to present the exhibition that explores the emergence of conceptual art in California in the 1960s and 70s. Co-curated by Constance M. Lewallen and Karen Moss, and initially developed as part of the Getty Foundation’s collaborative exhibition series Pacific Standard Time, State of Mind features artists who played a seminal role in the emergence of “California Conceptualism.” Works in the exhibition exemplify the unrestricted style of the era, when art was produced for alternative audiences and outside of artists’ studios—in the streets, at artist-run galleries, and in other non-traditional spaces. State of Mind features video, film, photography, installation, artist’s books, drawings, sculpture, and extensive performance documentation and ephemera, and includes Chris Burden, Lynn Hershman, Linda Mary Montano, Martha Rosler, Allen Ruppersberg, Ed Ruscha and many more.
