President’s MessagePacific Standard TimePerformance and Public Art FestivalJanuary 19–29, 2012James CunoPresident and Chief Executive OfficerThe J. Paul Getty TrustIt’s hard to believe that nearly three months have passedsince we celebrated the opening weekend for PacificStandard Time: Art in L.A. 1945–1980. But the excitementand collaboration continue in 2012 with Pacific StandardTime Performance and Public Art Festival, which takesplace from January 19–29, throughout the greater LosAngeles area.Looking over the line-up of what will be presented, I amintrigued by the contrast between visual spectacles thatwill be staged in public arenas and underground works insmaller, less mainstream venues. Many events will focuson L.A.’s dynamic history of experimental music andtheater. We will also see number of performances byartists who emerged from the political protest climate ofthe 60s and 70s and who are now reinventing themselvesusing new forms of protest.In addition to the festival activities, new Pacific StandardTime exhibitions continue to open over the next fewmonths. The festival calendar has been thoughtfullycreated so that visitors can attend the performances andtake in nearby exhibitions each day. Visit the website atpacificstandardtimefestival.org to see the complete lineupof events.I encourage each of you to experience these exhibitionsand events for yourself. They are sure to inspire, enlightenand educate.Postwar Los Angeles was a key internationalbirthplace of performance art, from publicartworks, large-scale spectacles, and expansiveperformances, to small-scale interventions inthe public sphere. Engaging the innovativespirit of that period, the Pacific Standard TimePerformance and Public Art Festival willtransform Southern California as it celebratesthis history through a contemporary lens,with a series of more than 30 adaptations,re-inventions, and commissions inspired by the installationand performance artists working in Los Angeles between 1945and 1980.Myths of Rape by Leslie Labowitz, performed forThree Weeks in May, 1977, Suzanne Lacy.
