“In 1966, Maurice Tuchman, curator of modern art at the Los Angeles
County Museum of Art (LACMA) in Los Angeles, California, introduced the
Art and Technology (A&T) program. The mandate of this project,
which was peripheral to the museum’s activities, was to promote an
exchange between artists and the corporate world.

Tuchman and his colleague, curator Jane Livingston, set out to pair
artists and companies in the most advantageous manner. After overseeing
the project’s logistics, they supervised its material achievement. In
addition, certain works produced in conjunction with the program were
presented at the American pavilion during the 1970 Osaka World
Exposition and at LACMA the same year.Tuchman and his colleague, curator Jane Livingston, set out to pair
