"woefully underexamined"

Museums and galleries all over Southern California will be filled to overflowing this fall with exhibitions that are part of Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A., 1945-1980. The Getty-sponsored historical survey chronicles countless nooks and crannies of the first two generations of the region’s art made after World War II. In all, some 60 shows will open over the next six months, offering the most in-depth look imaginable at a woefully underexamined period.

Above at Los Angeles County Museum of Art: "Folding Screen With Indian Wedding and Flying Pole," circa 1690, is part of the museum's "Contested Visions" exhibition.
