Viewing single post of blog Travel Bursary 2017: Los Angeles

Although not the purpose of my visit, the trip coincided with Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA an exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles.

Led by the Getty, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA is a collaborative effort with arts institutions across Southern California, and my time in Los Angeles would be punctuated by this overarching project.

My first day in Los Angeles was spent at The Getty Center, as the perfect place to settle after the long flight, familiarise myself with PST: LA/LA programme, and fix plans for the next two weeks.

Two exhibitions at the Getty stood out: ‘Making Art Conrete’, looking at artists in Argentina and Brazil associated with the concrete art movement, and ‘Golden Kingdoms: Luxury and Legacy in the Ancient Americas’.
