“50/50: California Art in Transition, 1940-1970,” curated by Glen Knowles, examines the period including World War II and the following decades, when artists and art techniques from Europe and around the world flooded into California, bringing new ideas of modernism. In California art schools, there was a split, with about half of them teaching the new modernism and abstraction, and half adhering to conservative representational methods. This exhibition shows how an exhibition of the time, presented by a California gallery or art school, would have looked.
