This blog offers a platform for discussion about the exhibition West of Center: Art and the Counterculture Experiment in America, 1965-1977, on display at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver 10 November 2011– 19 February 2012.
The exhibition documents an exceptionally interesting time in the heady and hallucinogenic days of the 1960s and ’70s, when a diverse range of artists and creative individuals based in the American West—from the Pacific coast to the Rocky Mountains and the Southwest—broke the barriers between art and lifestyle and embraced the new, hybrid sensibilities of the countercultural movement.
