An evening with Joan Weinstein, deputy director of the Getty Foundation, to discuss “Pacific Standard Time,” an unprecedented series of concurrent exhibitions at museums throughout Southern California, highlighting the post–World War II Los Angeles art scene. “Pacific Standard Time” was a collaboration of more than fifty Southern California art institutions, which worked together to tell the story of how Los Angeles became a new center of the art world. Launched by the Getty Foundation and the Getty Research Institute, “Pacific Standard Time” ran from October 2011 to April 2012. Weinstein discussed the planned exhibitions and participating institutions and venues for this region-wide event, as well as answered questions from attendees. The talk was held at the home of ArtTable member and director of education at the Santa Monica Museum of Art Asuka Hisa in Victoria Park Circle, a charming historical neighborhood located in the mid-city area of Los Angeles.
