State of Mind is a deep investigation of seminal conceptual and related avant-garde activities in the late 1960s and early 1970s and the critical interchange between artists living in California.

Raymond Pettibon: The Punk Years, 1978–86 taps into the steady stream of this California artist’s early graphic arts production, before he appeared on the contemporary art stage. This exhibition includes over 200 examples of Pettibon’s powerful designs made between 1978 and 1986, when he was immersed in the Los Angeles punk rock scene, doing the graphic design for Black Flag and other punk bands.
