This session will include the participation of eight curators and scholars whom will give 6 to 8 minute presentations each (PechaKucha style) on Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA exhibitions. Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA is an initiative of the Getty launching in September 2017 (through January 2018), focusing on Latin American and Latino art. It features more than 80 exhibitions organized by art museums and cultural institutions in the greater Los Angeles area. One of the aims of the initiative was to rethink and challenge the fields of Latin American and Latino art, which at present are considered separate and fragmented. This session proposes an analysis of these aims and the contributions of PST: LA/LA to the field of art history as a whole.    This session invited the curators and scholars participating to examine exhibition projects in which they were not directly involved; an opportunity for objective criticality as well as for connections to their own research interests, including, but not limited to, issues of the local, what Latin America means in the context of its presentation in the United States, the fields of Latin American and Latino art, and the archive, to name a few. The short presentations will be followed by a brief conclusion by the respondent and Q&A.
