Teaching and Writing the Art Histories of Latin American Los Angeles

10.6.17 at the Getty Center


The annual AHSC conference is developed in collaboration with the Getty Research Institute and takes place in conjunction with the Getty’s region-wide art initiative Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA.

PST LA/LA is a far-reaching, ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles, taking place at cultural institutions throughout Southern California from September 2017 through January 2018 (for more info:


LA/LA provides educators and scholars with invaluable resources that will surely impact the study and teaching of art history for years to come. Aside from the practical concerns of aligning course curricula with a wealth of exhibitions that are temporally and geographically dispersed, there are many questions that arise about the impact of these kinds of exhibitions on scholarship and pedagogy.
