More Than 70 California Institutions to Participate in 2017 Pacific Standard Time

The Getty Foundation has announced that more than seventy museums and cultural centers will participate in the 2017 edition of Pacific Standard Time—a series of thematically linked exhibitions at California-based institutions. It is partnering with twenty-four arts venues for the first time, including the Broad, ESMoA, Sunnylands Center and Gardens, the University of Southern California, and the University of California, Santa Barbara.

Titled “LA/LA,” the second iteration of the four-month-long initiative will explore Latin American and Latino art and will be held from September 2017 to January 2018. The Getty Foundation also announced that $1.25 million in grants will support programming for the event. Six hundred thousand dollars will go to “Live Art: Latin America/Los Angeles”—an eleven-day performance art festival organized by Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater (REDCAT). Of that sum, $450,000 will be allotted to the LA Promise Fund, and $250,000 will support the Los Angeles Unified School District.

Deborah Marrow, director of the Getty Foundation, said, “Like the exhibition catalogues which preserve a legacy of scholarship, the new grants announced today ensure that the impact of ‘Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA’ will be felt far beyond museum walls.”

Jim Cuno, president of the J. Paul Getty Trust, said, “To do justice to its vast and complex theme and engage audiences throughout the region, ‘Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA’ needs to be as encompassing as its subject. We’re thrilled that the initiative is still growing, and we’re proud that the Getty is helping to realize these ambitions through additional grants.”

Pacific Standard Time exhibitions will explore a wide range of topics, including the history of pre-Hispanic art in South America, as seen through the holdings of the Mingei International Museum, Cuban video art at ESMoA, and new work by Latina artists Judithe Hernández and Patssi Valdez at the Millard Sheets Art Center.
