      Cruising the Archive: Queer Art and Culture in Los Angeles explores the relationship between artistic practices and LGBT histories through objects and documents from the ONE National Gay and Lesbian Archives. The work of gay and lesbian artists, activists, filmmakers, and community leaders living and working in Los Angeles between the end of WWII and Gay Liberation of the 1970s will be presented alongside archival materials from ONE's extensive collections. As the oldest LGBT organization in the United States and the largest repository of LGBT materials in the world, ONE is uniquely positioned to contextualize this period often understudied within LGBT history. Cruising the Archive will be on view concurrently in two locations: the ONE Archives Gallery and Museum in West Hollywood, and the ONE Archives location in West Adams. A range of programmatic activities and a fully illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition.

      Cruising the Archive: Queer Art and Culture in Los Angeles is part of the groundbreaking cultural program, Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. from 1945 to 1980. Starting in October 2011, more than 60 cultural institutions across Southern California will come together to tell the story of the birth of the L.A. art scene and how it became a major force in the art world.

      The campaign features unexpected pairings between pop culture icons of today with artists featured within Pacific Standard Time. “Celebrate the Era that Continues to Inspire the World” is the theme of the campaign, which celebrates how Los Angeles art from 1945 – 1980 continues to inspire the world of music, art, film and architecture of today.
