Pacific Standard Time

Pacific Standard Time

The Getty Research institute’s massive Pacific Standard Time initiative focuses on postwar art in Los Angeles. Through archival acquisitions, oral history interviews, public programming, exhibitions and publications, the Research Institute is responding to the need to locate, document and preserve the art historical record of this vibrant period. Between October 2011 and February 2012, a major exhibition at the J. Paul Getty Museum will present a survey of postwar painting and sculpture in Los Angeles. Responding to this major reassessment of art in Los Angeles, this library gathers the finest monographs on Los Angeles artists from the late 1940s to the present; from William Copley to Elad Lassry, from Wallace Berman to Ed Templeton.

Pacific Standard Time

"In 1955 Justine left me, and that’s when I took my first serious pictures. I got into a routine of getting up very early in the morning and walking around Venice taking photographs. Looking at then today I can see that they’re lonely photographs, and some of them are quite odd. When you really look at something it takes on a different presence, and there’s often a stark beauty to things that are dismissed as commonplace. If the light and the composition are right you can create beautiful moments of reverie from very pedestrian sources." --Charles Brittin: West and South.
