“California Design, 1930-1965:
Living in a Modern Way”
Explores how the California of our collective imagination – a democratic utopia where a good climate permitted life to be led informally and largely outdoors – was translated into a material culture that defined an era. The first major study of “California Modern” features more than 250 objects in media ranging from furniture and fashion to graphics and film.
