July 27, 2003 is the last day of the exhibit Ocean View: The Depiction of Southern California Coastal Lifestyle at the Showcase Gallery at the Autry Museum. Ocean View: The Depiction of Southern California Coastal Lifestyle will be on view in the Showcase Gallery from Nov 23, 2002, – July 27, 2003. Ocean View: presents in visual form the myths, realities, and artistry of the Southern California coastline. Drawing from the work of Dr. John ‘Doc’ Ball, Tom Blake, Robert Johnson, Leroy Grannis, and Don James, among others, Ocean View documents the development of surfing as both a healthy activity and a newfound entertainment. Surfing photographers were also its practitioners; over time they saw their work feed into the iconography of surf culture as it became known more widely through the motion picture and advertising industries. Curator Kevin Jon Boyle assembled this exhibition of fine art, advertising, and documentary photography that charts a natural and social topography from the turn of the century to the present day. Boyle, curator of exhibitions at the University of California, Riverside-California Museum of Photography from 1987 to 2000, passed away March 22, 2002. The Autry will include a special tribute in the exhibition to honor Boyle for his outstanding contributions as curator, writer, photographer, and surfer. Presented in three components, Ocean View includes a photographic exhibition, supplementary interpretive and historical texts, and a public discussion program. As an exhibition, Ocean View features 168 images from the beginning of the twentieth century to the present, concentrating upon materials from the post-war boom to the present. Representative images from historical and contemporary fine art photography, advertising, television, film and surfing journals and publications, including photography by Laurie Brown, Ron Church, Will Connell, Joe Deal, John Divola, Peter Elliston, Anthony Friedkin and Larry Silver, will be presented in the museum’s galleries.
