Getty Announces Galleries For Its 3rd Edition of PST ART

Getty today announced that more than 40 art galleries in Los Angeles and throughout Southern California have joined the Participating Gallery Program of PST ART: Art & Science Collide, the expansive collaborative event that will begin on September 15, 2024. In this third edition of PST ART—formerly known as Pacific Standard Time—dozens of museums, scientific institutions, and performing arts organizations will offer a multidisciplinary and multifaceted exploration of the intersections of art and science. Their exhibitions and programs, on view over the course of five months, will be amplified by the presentations of the galleries in this third iteration of PST ART’s Participating Gallery Program.

Participating galleries in Downtown Los Angeles, Culver City, Santa Monica, Hollywood, West Hollywood, and beyond will offer group and solo exhibitions, artist-curated projects, and installations featuring a diverse array of contemporary artists. Throughout the duration of Art & Science Collide, a vibrant cross-section of rising and established galleries will present works that explore urgent topics ranging from climate change and environmental justice to the future of artificial intelligence and alternative medicine. 

Katherine E. Fleming, President of the J. Paul Getty Trust, said, “Come September, we want to see the confluence of art and science explored in every corner of Southern California’s creative communities. The Participating Gallery Program is an essential element of this vision and an important part of PST ART’s constellation of offerings. Galleries are a vital part of the art and culture ecosystem across the region, and their shows will pose more questions, offer more hypotheses, and unearth more discoveries from some of the brightest and most thought-provoking artists working today.”

“PST ART: Art & Science Collide is an initiative that is historically much overdue, and I could not be more thrilled to contribute to the conversation,” said Esther Kim Varet, founder of Los Angeles-based gallery Various Small Fires. “Our generation, faced with the existential threat of our planet’s sixth extinction, feels impelled to rethink and reframe our entire relationship to art. There has been no goal more ambitious than the Getty’s aim to rewrite art history through the pertinent topic of art and science.”

Exhibitions will include a reexamination of Jeffrey Deitch’s prescient 1992 exhibition Post Human; a presentation of Betye Saar’s monumental altar assemblage Mojotech (1987) at Roberts Projects; and, at Various Small Fires, an exhibition dedicated to Newton and Helen Mayer Harrison, whose work imagined possibilities for ecological repair. Solo artist exhibitions include Elise Rasmussen at Night Gallery and Torkwase Dyson at Pace Gallery, among many others.  A full program will be announced in the coming months.
