PST ART (formerly known as Getty PST) will be landing in Southern California in September 2024, feature over 60 exhibits from more than 800+ artists, and offer grants of up to $19 million.
Here are some notes on the programming:
- Formerly known as Pacific Standard Time, this new incarnation, titled “PST Art: Art & Science Collide,” will feature cultural, educational, scientific, community and arts organizations from across Southern California, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, CalTechLive, Crenshaw Dairy Mart, LACMA’s Art + Technology Lab and the New Children’s Museum.
- The sprawling event will boast 60 exhibitions and more than 800 artists exploring topics such as ancient cosmology, artificial intelligence, Indigenous science fiction and environmental justice.
- The programming was announced in conjunction with a new round of Getty grants that bring the total price tag of Getty’s investment in 2024’s PST Art to $19 million.
- Community is the driving force of the programming. Organizers will set up a big tent where everyone is welcome, and there will be something to appeal to a vast array of differing interests and tastes.
- Because it’s rooted in science, climate change is a major theme that emerged in the programming, with many participants showing particular interest in futurism rooted in tradition or indigeneity.
