This fall, take a trip to the Getty Center in Los Angeles and step into Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, 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.
Four major exhibitions kick off PST: LA/LA: Golden Kingdoms: Luxury and Legacy in the Ancient Americas; The Metropolis in Latin America, 1830-1930; Photography in Argentina, 1850-2010; and Making Art Concrete: Works from Argentina and Brazil in the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros.
Hear PST: LA/LA related talks: “Imperial Radiance: Luxury Arts in the Land of the Incas” and “Teaching and Writing the Art Histories of Latin American Los Angeles.” And catch the performance “Sonorama! Latin American Composers in Hollywood,” a special tribute to Juan García Esquivel, Lalo Schifrin, Maria Grever, and Johnny Richards, all of whom found their way into legendary Hollywood recording studios and onto screens large and small.
Fall offers a different world of art at the nearby Getty Villa. Iphigenia in Aulis begins its run September 7 in a dramatic outdoor venue modeled after Greek and Roman theaters. Find out what happens when the goddess Artemis offers King Agamemnon the impossible: victory over Troy in exchange for the sacrifice of his daughter Iphigenia.
Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA is an initiative of the Getty with arts institutions across Southern California. The presenting sponsor is Bank of America.
