The First European Exhibition of Art from Los
Los Angeles Artists was curated by Maurice Tuchman and Jane Livingston from
the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The exhibition featured the work of a ‘small diverse group of artists’, many of them only recently out of art school.
Some of these younger artists, including Larry Bell, Robert Irwin, John
McLaughlin, Bruce Nauman, Ed Ruscha and William Wegman, were little known in
the US outside a small number of alternative galleries and art publications. Nicholas
Serota, then a young exhibition organiser with the Arts Council, assisted
Tuchman and Livingston with the exhibition.
