UPCOMING TOUR EVENT
GETTY MUSEUM TOUR
Thursday, OCTOBER 26, 2017 at the GETTY MUSEUM
Guided Architecture tour and Exhibit
From its independence in 1810 until the economic crisis of 2001, Argentina was perceived as a modern country with a powerful economic system, a strong middle class, a large European-immigrant population, and an almost nonexistent indigenous culture. This perception differs greatly from the way that other Latin American countries have been viewed, and underlines the difference between Argentina’s colonial and postcolonial process and those of its neighbors. Comprising three hundred works by sixty artists, this exhibition examines crucial periods and aesthetic movements in which photography had a critical role, producing—and, at times, dismantling—national constructions, utopian visions, and avant-garde artistic trends.

This exhibition is part of  Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA , a far reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles, taking place from September 2017 through January 2018 at more than 70 cultural institutions across Southern California. Pacific Standard Time is an initiative of the Getty. The presenting sponsor is Bank of America.

Meet 10:30am at Information Desk at Museum Entrance Hall. 
Docent led Tour starts at 11am.
Lunch at the Getty at about 12 noon.
After lunch we visit the exhibit ‘Photography in Argentina’
Cost $18 per guest for the tour.
Lunch cost and parking not included.
