DORODESIGN likes: Celebrating the architectural history of Los Angleles
“Pacific Standard Time”—the Getty’s 2011 extravaganza celebrating the artistic legacy of Los Angeles—returns this spring with a new initiative dedicated to the region’s architectural history. Running from April through September, “Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture in L.A.” comprises 11 exhibitions at institutions citywide as well as a series of other satellite happenings. Highlights include “In Focus: Ed Ruscha,” a show at the Getty that features photographs the artist took of the city in the 1960s and ’70s (April 9– September 29), and “A New Sculpturalism,” at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, which surveys radical formmaking by such Southern California–based talents as Thom Mayne, Michael Maltzan, and Frank Gehry (June 2–September 2).
