About the Festival:
The Pacific Standard Time Performance and Public Art Festival celebrates the history of postwar public artworks, large-scale spectacles, expansive performances, and small-scale interventions in the public sphere in Los Angeles. Through a contemporary lens, the Festival employs a series of adaptations, re-inventions, and commissions that are inspired by the installation and performance artists working in Los Angeles between 1945 and 1980.
Throughout the 11-day festival, a group of new public artworks will be on view throughout the city. In addition, new performances will premiere every day, including outdoor visual spectacles, experimental theater and sound art, social and political interventions, and media art. A nightly after-party, Black Box, will provide a space for socializing, and include surprise performances each evening.
Also, be sure to check out the Festival Itineraries where events are broken down for you.
