Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945–1980
Opens Oct. 1. Pacific Standard Time brings together more than 60 cultural venues throughout Southern California to tell the story of the rise of the Los Angeles art scene. The Getty Foundation-initiated collaboration, the largest ever undertaken by the region’s institutions, explores the years after World War II through the 1960s and ’70s. Included are L.A. pop, post-minimalism, modernism, multimedia installations, films of the African-American L.A. rebellion, Woman’s Building feminism, Chicano performance art, Japanese-American design and artists’ collectives. I love these events, hope you all enjoy this as well while enjoying your tour of LA. Participants include the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Museum of Contemporary Art, Hammer Museum, Getty Museum, California Institute of the Arts, Japanese American National Museum, Watts Towers Arts Center and others in San Diego, Orange County, Santa Barbara and Palm Springs. Venues include the Getty Center, Fowler Museum at UCLA and Hammer Museum.
