LACE is thrilled to announce it has received a grant to participate in the next edition of the region-wide arts initiative Pacific Standard Time, scheduled to open in 2024.
LACE is one of 45 cultural, educational, and scientific institutions throughout Southern California to receive support from the Getty Foundation for their projects, all of which will explore the intersection of art and science.
Pacific Standard Time will include dozens of simultaneous exhibitions and programs focused on the intertwined histories of art and science, past and present, that together address some of the most complex challenges of the 21st century—from climate change and environmental racism to the current pandemic and artificial intelligence—and the creative solutions these problems demand.
LACE’s project, (Un)disciplinary Tactics will showcase the work of Beatriz da Costa alongside other artists in dialogue with her “tactical biopolitics,” a collaborative practice spanning art, science, and non-academic forms of knowledge about the environment, medicine, and the body. This project is curated by Chief Curator and Director of Programming Daniela Lieja Quintanar with Curatorial Assistant Ana Briz.
LACE joins a diverse community of Southern California institutions that will present exhibitions, publications, performances, and public conversations and programs in 2024 as part of Pacific Standard Time. Congratulations to our many colleagues and partner organizations that also received grants.
Pacific Standard Time is an unprecedented series of collaborations among institutions across Southern California. In each, organizations simultaneously present research-based exhibitions and programs that explore and illuminate a significant theme in the region’s cultural history.
In Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945–1980, more than 60 cultural institutions joined forces between October 2011 and March 2012 and rewrote the history of the birth and impact of the L.A. art scene. In Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, presented from September 2017 through January 2018, more than 70 institutions collaborated on a paradigm-shifting examination of Latin American and Latinx art, seen together as a hemispheric continuum.
Pacific Standard Time is an initiative of the Getty.
