SAVE THE DATE: Gian Paolo Minelli is participating at the GETTY CENTER`s Photography in Argentina, 1850–2010: Contradiction and Continuity part of the Pacific Standard Time PST: LA/LA , 70+ exhibitions of Latin American and Latino art in Los Angeles. September 2017–January 2018. Opening September 18, 2017. Through a series of thematically linked exhibitions, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA will present a wide variety of important works of art, much of them new to Southern California audiences. While the majority of exhibitions will have an emphasis on modern and contemporary art, there also will be crucial exhibitions about the ancient world and the pre-modern era. With topics such as luxury objects in the pre-Columbian Americas, 20th- century Afro-Brazilian art, alternative spaces in Mexico City, and boundary-crossing practices of Latino artists, exhibitions will range from monographic studies of individual artists to broad surveys that cut across numerous countries. While the exhibitions will focus on the visual arts, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA programs will ultimately expand to touch on music, performance, literature, and even cuisine. Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA will be a multifaceted event that will transform Los Angeles and Southern California for five months, and our understanding of modern and contemporary art forever. Embracing organizations of all sizes and types—from the largest museums to smaller museums, from university galleries to performing arts centers — Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA exhibitions and programs will take place across Southern California, from Santa Barbara to San Diego, from Santa Monica to Palm Springs. With its historical roots in Latin America and its current demographics, Los Angeles might be described as tomorrow's capital city. In a way that is possible only in Los Angeles, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA will implicitly raise complex and provocative issues about present-day relations throughout the Americas and the rapidly changing social and cultural fabric of Southern California #Pstinla @Pstinla #latinamericanart#launchparty#theGetty#gianpaolominelli#dotfiftyone#losangeles#museums#thegettycenter#pacificstandardtime
Born in 1959 in Caracas, Venezuela, Francisco Pereira has become a great architect and sculptor in the latest years. Started his career as an architect, managing always to relate art with space; under this concept, he carried out a wide range of projects, including the building of houses, recreational and educational spaces, among others.
He began to be recognized as an admired sculptor in 2012 due to his amazing display ‘BIPEDOS’ based on copper-melted animal figures, standing on two legs. “Its members are made to earth by maintaining the basic and
primitive connection to the earthly, the physical, the tangible, but in turn, they rise in height in search of the connection with the universe, with the mysteries of spirituality.” said the sculptor in an interview.
