Complete run, mostly in fine condition, of one of the liveliest and most interesting art periodicals of the 1970s and 1980s. "The Los Angeles Institute of Contemporary Art is a new concept designed to be a catalyst for the support and recognition of contemporary art in Southern California. [...] An exhibition program reflecting many concepts of high artistic achievement uses visiting curators from all sectors of the community and open, depoliticized selection processes.
