The late 1950s to the end of the 1960s saw a huge cultural transformation in California. The buttoned-down 50s and its post-war prosperity gave way to the assassinations of JFK and MLK, Vietnam war protests, acid trips, and the Summer of Love.
The Dilexi Gallery, an influential art gallery in San Francisco, was a product of the time. From 1958 to 1969, it showed works from a whole new crop of modern artists.
This summer, six galleries (four in LA and two in San Francisco) are hosting a retrospective of work that once appeared in the Dilexi Gallery.
