After five years of planning and more than $16 million in grants from the Getty Foundation, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA launched Friday, Sept. 15, with a massive Latin American celebration at the Getty Center. It's one of more than 70 Southern California institutions hosting exhibits of Latin American and Latinx art, and last night visitors were invited to explore four related exhibitions that include everything from pre-Columbian art of the Maya, Incas and Aztecs to contemporary works made from concrete. The celebration was a fitting introduction to the initiative, with music from DJ Rani de Leon and the Cecilia y Edgar Latin Experience, and a performance by Bloco dance group Viver Brasil.
