I've mentioned in passing that there is currently a massive Southern Californian cultural event, Pacific Standard Time, which is a coordinated curation among various cultural institution to exhibit and assess the art of Los Angeles from approximately 1945 to 1980. Given the unprecedented scope of this project, I'm trying to experience as much of it as I am able.
Ideally, I would have time to give a full review post to each exhibit that I visit. Yeah, that's the plan, but I can't honestly expect it to become a reality. Instead, I plan on giving a brief progress report of my week's PST adventurers.
Here are the exhibits that I've seen since the event started earlier this month.
"Mapping Another L.A.: The Chicano Art Movement" and "Icons of the Invisible: Oscar Castillo"
"Now Dig This! Art and Black Los Angeles 1960-1980"
"The House That Sam Built: Sam Maloof and Art in the Pomona Valley, 1945-1985"
EDIT: I reviewed this show in "Domestic Designs to Adore and Delight" on October 19.
"Proof: The Rise of Printmaking in Southern California"
"State of Mind: New California Art Circa 1970"
"Doin' It in Public: Feminism and Art at the Woman's Building"
I reviewed this show in "Appreciating Herstory" on October 9.
Yeah, I've been busy. I'll try to write up my experiences in dedicated posts. I'll be using the "Pacific Standard Time" tag to make it easier for accessing these posts. This will also help finding art gallery posts that are related to this event, but not actually an official exhibit.
In any case, I hope my adventures in Pacific Standard Time will keep you all entertained and informed.
