Photographer Robert Polidori, known for his images of architecture and human habitats, created a series of images of the Getty Center shortly before the opening of the multipurpose complex in 1997. As the Center celebrates its twentieth anniversary, this exhibition features behind-the-scenes views of the building and galleries as objects from J. Paul Getty’s painting, sculpture, and decorative arts collections were being installed in the Museum for the first time.
