Scholarship Drives L.A. Exhibition

As the Getty Museum in L.A. ramps up for the second edition—Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA—devoted this time to Latin America and Latino art, PST leaders are getting back to basics. They are dispensing with claims of boosting cultural tourism and focusing on academic value. “The first time, we talked about the economic impact of PST a lot because we were uncertain otherwise of how to measure the success,” admits James Cuno, the head of the J. Paul Getty Trust. “But in the process of reflecting on it, we realised that success could be measured in publications produced and scholarship produced.” Details. Pictured is Sandra Eleta’s “Edita (la del plumero)” (1978-79).
