  • World War I: War of Images, Images of War

    Daily through April 19, 2015
    Research Institute Galleries I and II, Getty Center

    World War I: War of Images, Images of War examines the art and visual culture of the First World War—a conflict of unprecedented mechanized slaughter as well as a struggle over the cultural dominance and direction of Europe. The exhibition juxtaposes the representation of the war in visual propaganda with its depiction by artists who experienced the brutality firsthand. Drawing principally from the Getty Research Institute's special collections, the exhibition features a range of satirical journals, prints, posters, and photographs as well as accounts from the front, including a war diary, correspondence, and "trench art" made by soldiers. Through such archival and graphic material, World War I: War of Images, Images of War captures the trauma of this first modern war.

  • The Life of Art: Context, Collecting, and Display

    Daily
    South Pavilion, Plaza Level, Getty Center

    From the time an object is made until the day it enters a museum's collection, it may be displayed, used, and perceived in different ways. The Life of Art takes selected objects from the Getty Museum's galleries and encourages visitors to sit down and spend time with them, offering the opportunity to examine them closely to understand how they were made and functioned, why they were collected, and how they have been displayed. Through careful looking, what may be learned about the maker and previous owners of a French gilt-bronze wall light, for example, or the transformation in England of a Chinese porcelain bowl? Close engagement reveals the full lives of these works and why they continue to be collected and cherished today.

  • Josef Koudelka: Nationality Doubtful

    Daily through March 22, 2015
    West Pavilion, Lower Level, Getty Center

    After photographing theatrical productions in Prague and Roma settlement camps across Eastern Europe, Josef Koudelka (born 1938) risked his life and career to document the 1968 Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia. His images of the event, smuggled into the West and reproduced worldwide, forced his exile. This exhibition—the first U.S. retrospective devoted to Koudelka since 1988—presents more than 140 works produced over five decades by this legendary photographer, including early photographic experiments, vintage Gypsies book prints and maquettes, and a selection of large-scale panoramas that he has made since 1986. This exhibition was co-organized by the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Art Institute of Chicago.

  • Give and Ye Shall Receive: Gift Giving in the Middle Ages

    Daily through March 15, 2015

    In the Middle Ages, gift exchange helped people define their relationships to family and friends, to acquaintances and strangers, to God and to church. This exhibition, drawn from the Museum's permanent collection, examines models for giving found in scripture and in the lives of the saints, explores how gift giving functioned in medieval society, and highlights the special role of the medieval book as a gift.

  • In Focus: Play

    Daily through May 10, 2015
    West Pavilion, Lower Level, Getty Center

    The introduction of photography in 1839 coincided with major social and economic changes spurred by the Industrial Revolution and a burgeoning culture of leisure. In addition to documenting historic events, this new medium was used to record the everyday, including the many ways people spent their free time. With the advent of faster film and handheld cameras, dancing and carousing were captured with the same enthusiasm as moments of respite and quiet contemplation. This exhibition traces the development of the photographic subject of leisure through the works of artists such as Roger Fenton, Eugène Atget, Gertrude Käsebier, Brassaï, Larry Sultan, and Bill Owens.
