Issue 189

September 2017

To coincide with the launch of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA throughout more than 70 Southern California institutions, we ask curators and critics to reflect on the key issues and highlights of this ambitious exploration of Latin American, Latinx and Chicana/o art. Also in this issue: Jörg Heiser reports from documenta 14 in Athens and Kassel; Eva Rothschild reveals the influences that have shaped her artistic thinking; as well as monographs on Nairy Baghramian, David Bestué and Ellen Lesperance.
