PST: LA/LA Study Guides

PST guide from UCLA

Pacific Standard Time: Art and Design in Los Angeles

UCLA Library has published an excellent guide to all things Pacific Standard Time, including all three PST iterations:

  • Pacific Standard Time: Art in LA 1945-1980 (2011-2012)
  • Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture in LA (2013)
  • Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA (2017-2018)

The UCLA guide is a great place to start your research on exhibitions and artists included in Pacific Standard Time, as well as explore themes and practices related to art in Southern California. 

The Getty has announced that the next PST event will be Pacific Standard Time: Art x Science x LA in 2024.

Special Thanks

This collection of books was purchased with special funding from the Office of Student Equity to enhance CCSF Library's collection related to Latin American and Latinx cultures, and to support the learning of Latinx students. The Library is grateful to have an opportunity to bring these unique resources to the CCSF community!

About PST: LA/LA

Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA was an exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles. Led by the Getty, PST: LA/LA included a series of thematically linked exhibitions at more than seventy arts institutions across Southern California from 2017-2018. Exhibition topics ranged from luxury objects in the pre-Columbian Americas, 20th- century Afro-Brazilian art, alternative spaces in Mexico City, to boundary-crossing practices of Latino artists.
