BAILA Boxes at the Getty

Two BAILA Boxes are part of the official art collection in the library archives of both The Getty Museum and The Getty Research Institute, one in each institution. They are available for viewing at the Getty.

BAILA Boxes are hand-held or tabletop exhibitions.  They are curated loose leaf catalogs of artwork by BAILA (Black Artists in Los Angeles) in small photo storage boxes. The images are professionally printed with the highest caliber archival ink on museum quality 4″x6″ fiber paper.

These two BAILA Boxes, curated by Lili Bernard, are thank you gifts for the Getty Museum and Getty Research Institute, as a gesture of gratitude for their having hosted a roundtable with BAILA (Black Artists in Los Angeles) on November 4, 2014. BAILA artists responded to an open call to submit images of their works for consideration.  Below are the contents of the boxes.  Images appear in artist’s first name alphabetical order.
