EXTENDED: Artists of Mexico
Artists of Mexico is the only exhibition to give historical context to the Getty's region-wide endeavor, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, by featuring artists whose works and careers had particular resonance in Los Angeles. Their personal histories in L.A., their many exhibitions in Southern California, and in many instances through their widely known public works throughout the region reveal a profoundly important history.
Included in the exhibition are: Jean Charlot, Rafael Coronel, José Luis Cuevas, Bernice Kolko, Gustavo Montoya, Alfredo Ramos Martinez, Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Rufino Tamayo and Francisco Zúñiga.
Artists of Mexico is presented in anticipation of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, a far reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin America and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles. Supported by grants from the Getty Foundation, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA takes place from September 2017 through January 2018 at more than 70 cultural institutions across Southern California, from Los Angeles to Palm Springs, and from San Diego to Santa Barbara. Pacific Standard Time is an initiative of the Getty. For additional information regarding PST LA/LA, please visit pacificstandardtime.org.
Following the Artists of Mexico exhibition, Jack Rutberg Fine Arts will present a series of focused, solo exhibitions in concert with Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA. On September 23, 2017 the gallery will present Hans Burkhardt in Mexico, showing paintings and drawings from the 1950s to the early 1960s. In October, concurrent with the Burkhardt exhibition, the gallery will present a collaboration between the legendary Hollywood filmmaker George Romero of "Night of the Living Dead" fame and artist George Nama. In January 2018, the gallery will present two concurrent exhibitions, Rico Lebrun in Mexico and Francisco Zúñiga – Indigenous Beauty.
