REDCAT invites organizations and artists to propose projects to be included in an international festival of live art and performance art to be held in Los Angeles. The January 2018 festival is presented in conjunction with Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, an initiative of The Getty.

REDCAT is pleased to be overseeing and facilitating the creation of the festival, which will add to the impact of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, a far-reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles, to be presented at more than 70 Southern California organizations from September 2017 through January 2018.

With major funding from the Getty Foundation, REDCAT will provide financial support and other forms of technical and production assistance, when needed, for performance-based projects selected for inclusion in the 2018 festival in Los Angeles. 

Proposals, due by January 12, 2017, 11:59pm.

This wide-ranging international festival will celebrate and enhance the important themes and goals of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, and create a wide range of opportunities for community engagement with art and artists from Latin America and greater Los Angeles.

During the January 2018 festival (preliminary dates are January 11 to 21, 2018), artists from Latin America and the US will be featured in more than 25 distinct programs in multiple locations at participating institutions, as well as at other designated Festival sites in greater Los Angeles. Programs may range from large-scale site-specific works or happenings to multi-artist evenings of solo and small-ensemble performance art presented in a club-like atmosphere. Projects may range from new work by contemporary artists to historical re-creations or responses to historical performances.

Project support will generally be allocated to non-profit organizations in the Los Angeles area, but projects may also be proposed by unincorporated artists and artistic ensembles, which would be eligible to receive performance honoraria or partial commissioning or production support. 

About Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA  
Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA is 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 arts institutions across Southern California.

Through a series of thematically linked exhibitions and programs, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA highlights different aspects of Latin American and Latino art from the ancient world to the present day. With topics such as luxury objects in the pre-Hispanic Americas, 20th century Afro-Brazilian art, alternative spaces in Mexico City, and boundary-crossing practices of Latino artists, exhibitions range from monographic studies of individual artists to broad surveys that cut across numerous countries.  

Initiated through more than USD 15 million in grants from the Getty Foundation, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA involves more than 70 cultural institutions, from Los Angeles to Palm Springs, and from San Diego to Santa Barbara.   

Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA is an initiative of the Getty. The presenting sponsor is Bank of America.
