Helter Skelter: L.A. Art in the 1990s, named after The Beatles' song which motivated Charles Manson, was a contemporary art exhibit held from January 26, to April 26, 1992 at the L.A. Museum of Contemporary Art. Organized by Paul Schimmel, Helter Skelter displayed the work of 16 artists. Displaying works or sex, violence, and warped Americana, the exhibit aimed to destroy stereotypes of LA art and challenge the New York school. At the time Helter Skelter was hailed as the prime example of the modern contemporary art and is still helled as one of the most important and influential contemporary art exhibits in recent years.
