ProyectosLA Announces Participating Galleries, Artists, and Theme

Maximilíano Durón of Artnews writes that proyectosLA, a new art fair and exhibition hybrid—and part of the Getty Foundation’s Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative—has announced this year’s participating artists, galleries, and theme. The project, curated by Luiza Teixeira de Freitas and Claudia Segura, is titled “Here the border is you,” a play off of PST: LA/LA’s “A Celebration Beyond Borders” tagline, a poke at the Trump administration’s nativism and xenophobia.

ProyectosLA will run from September 16 to October 28, 2017, and will be staged at a 20,000-square-foot warehouse in downtown Los Angeles, featuring artists from nineteen galleries all over Latin America and the United States. “The idea was to think of Los Angeles as the last citadel of Latin America. The concept is basically thinking that the border in Los Angeles that separates Los Angeles from Latin America does not exist. Los Angeles is part of Latin America, and we could say that Latin America is in Los Angeles still, nowadays,” said Segura.
