In the 1930s, people longed for relief from the major misery of the Great Depression. Little did they know that prosperity would only return with the awful holocaust of World War II. Imagine knowing that the solution to your present problem is going to be a worse problem. Sometimes ignorance is a blessing. John Gutmann, on the other hand, seemed to see it coming. A significant 95-print retrospective of his photographs opens today at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Getting a fresh take on a faded fascination is a pleasure. "The Photography of John Gutmann: Culture Shock" at the Museum of Contemporary Art manages to light up several sleeping dreams at once, like a rejuvenated pinball machine. The place is Northern California in the '30s and '40s. The photographic psyche dwelt on the Great Depression. WPA lens masters like Dorthea Lange bravely recorded the agrarian purgatory of migrant workers.

On the minus side of the corporate ledger, there are oil spills, tax exemptions and price fixing. On the plus side, there is corporate support for the arts, in-house art collections and worthwhile business-sponsored exhibitions, one of which is "The Human Element: Black and White Photographs From the BankAmerica Corporation Collection" on view through Aug. 6 at Cal State Long Beach's University Art Museum.

With 250 works on display, "California Photography: 1945-1980" is by far the largest exhibition yet mounted at Balboa Park's Museum of Photographic Arts. Like the state it depicts, the show is vast and sprawling and impossible to really absorb in a single visit--and it seems even harder to absorb due to the compactness of the museum.

Dying for some super relief from the super hyperbole of Super Bowl week? Here are some best bets on the local cultural and entertainment scene that should offer an absorbing change of pace before and after Sunday's kickoff. Theater: San Diego Repertory Theatre's extended hit musical, "Six Women with Brain Death, or Expiring Minds Want to Know," offers a super diversion. A lunatic tale of information overload in the '80s, the performances are at 8 nightly through Friday, and at 6 and 9:30 p.m.

In "Neither Speech Nor Language: Photography and the Written Word," the J. Paul Getty Museum looks at the evolving relationship between the written word and the photographic image. Drawn from the Getty's formidably vast permanent collection and spanning the years 1840 through 1961, the show (which opens Thursday and runs through May 12) features works by more than 25 European and American photographers.
