Doin' It in Public: Feminism and Art at the Woman's Building comprises an exhibition, two scholarly publications, "Doin' it in public : feminism and art at the Woman's Building" and "From site to vision : the Woman's Building in contemporary culture," and a series of public events that document, contextualize and pay tribute to the groundbreaking work of feminist artists and art cooperatives that were centered in and around the Los Angeles Woman's Building (downtown L.A.) in the 1970s and 1980s. Doin' It in Public is part of Pacific Standard Time: Art in LA 1945-1980, an unprecedented collaboration, initiated by the Getty, that brings together more than sixty cultural institutions from across Southern California for six months beginning October 2011 to tell the story of the birth of the L.A. art scene.
