About PST: LA/LAPacific Standard Time: LA/LA is a far-reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles. Led by the Getty, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA is the latest collaborative effort from arts institutions across Southern California. Through a series of thematically linked exhibitions, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA will present a wide variety of important works of art, much of them new to Southern California audiences. While the majority of exhibitions will have an emphasis on modern and contemporary art, there also will be crucial exhibitions about the ancient world and the pre-modern era. With topics such as luxury objects in the pre-Columbian Americas, 20th-century Afro-Brazilian art, alternative spaces in Mexico City, and boundary-crossing practices of Latino artists, exhibitions will range from monographic studies of individual artists to broad surveys that cut across numerous countries.
“South of the Border” is an exhibition addressing the timely and controversial topic of immigration through the works of ten artists. Featured artists include (in alphabetical order): Lili Bernard, Marisa Caichiolo, Pablo Cristi, Joel García, Oscar Magallanes, Maja, Poli Marichal, Andres Montoya, Sandy Rodriguez and Votan.
WED. NOV. 8th (7-9pm)
In conjunction, the gallery will present a panel discussion with Eileen Truax, author of Dreamers: An Immigrant Generation’s Fight for Their American Dream.

FRI. NOV. 17th (7-9pm)
