Pacific Standard Time: Crosscurrents in L.A. Painting and SculptureJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 14 Dec 2011
If you haven't already, we strongly encourage you explore the wide array of Pacific Standard Time exhibitions put on by the Getty. The exhibition at the Getty Center itself is one packed with iconic artworks, including one of our favorites, Standard Station by Ed Ruscha that reduces the pictorial elements of a "standard" roadside architecture into the geometric elements of design. The show provides an in depth examination of the development of painting and sculpture in Southern California between the 1940s and the 1970s. The show, due to the extensive initiative taken by the Pacific Standard Time exhibitions as a whole pulls together many artworks on loan from preeminent national and international collections to bring together the work of individual artists and the work of Southern California artists in general to exhibit distinct practices and historical movements. The exhibition ends on February 5th, 2012.
