The Art and Technology program was initiated at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) in 1967, when curator Maurice Tuchman proposed the idea of formulating a relationship between contemporary artists and high-tech corporations that would lead to experiments conjoining art and industry and possibly produce new works of art. The program attracted the participation of some of the most renowned artists of the period--Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Claes Oldenburg, and Robert Irwin, to name just a few--who were paired with "Patron Sponsors" who hosted some of the artists at corporate facilities and in some cases collaborated on projects. In March 1970, several works resulting from these pairings were shown in the American Pavilion at Expo '70 (the world's fair in Osaka, Japan) and in an exhibition at LACMA from May 16 to August 29, 1971. This archive consists of documentation relating to the Art and Technology program, including correspondence between LACMA curators, artists, ... Read More
