Gallery Luisotti is pleased to announce our participation in 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, PST: LA/LA is the latest collaborative effort from arts institutions across Southern California.
Complementing PST: LA/LA’s expansive roster of exhibitions, performances, and public programs at more than 70 museums and cultural institutions, participating galleries will present more than 90 group and solo exhibitions, artist-curated projects, and installations in Downtown Los Angeles, Culver City, Santa Monica, Hollywood, West Hollywood, and beyond. Throughout the four-month initiative, a vibrant cross-section of emerging and established galleries will join in celebrating Latin American and Latino artists, and will bring works to the region by both internationally-known artists who will be shown on the West Coast or in the United States for the first time and emerging talent from across Latin America and the U.S.
Today, nearly half of the population of Los Angeles has roots in Latin America, contributing to Southern California as a lively center of artistic production and a natural nexus of cultural creativity between North and South. In recent years a number of exhibitions in the Americas and Europe have offered an introduction to the original and varied heritage of Latin America and the Latin American diaspora. Now there is an opportunity for a broader and deeper examination of this art through a renewed collaboration by the Pacific Standard Time partners. In the process, Southern California will play a significant role in the research and presentation of Latin American art.
