Presenting over sixty thematically linked exhibitions, “Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA” starts this month across various venues in Southern California.

(São Paulo, Brazil) In one room, the beauty. In the next, the foul.

Featuring eight artists – more than half of them nominated to PIPA Prize, Bruno Dunley, Erika Verzutti, Luiz Roque, Pedro França and Sofia Borges –, the exhibition that opened this week at Central Galeria was curated by painter and print-maker Leda Catunda.
