Pacific Standard Time at the Fowler Museum
In Fall 2017, the Fowler Museum at UCLA presents a three-part exhibition program exploring Brazil’s African history and cultural heritage. Two exhibitions presented as part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA include Axé Bahia: The Power of Art in an Afro-Brazilian Metropolis and Lineage through Landscape: Tracing Egun in Brazil (July 23–Dec 10), exploring complexities of race and cultural affiliation in Brazil, with more than 100 works from mid-20th century to the present. A third and complementary exhibition, Africa/Americas: Photographic Portraits by Pierre Verger (Sept. 10–Jan. 21), highlights 32 photographs by the renowned French artist, whose humanistic images explored enduring continuities linking people and cultures of West Africa and the African diaspora in the Americas.
Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA is a far-reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles. Supported by grants from the Getty Foundation, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA takes place from September 2017 through January 2018 at more than 70 cultural institutions across Southern California, from Los Angeles to Palm Springs, and from San Diego to Santa Barbara. Pacific Standard Time is an initiative of the Getty. The presenting sponsor is Bank of America.
