California Video

Since the 1960s, video has played an increasingly central role in artistic production throughout the world. This has been particularly true in California, where many of the state's most prominent artists have used the medium to produce some of their most significant works. The Research Library at the Getty Research Institute has one of the largest institutional collections of video art in the world, and the most extensive holding of works produced in Southern California.
