    Hollywood in Havana: Five Decades of Cuban Posters Promoting U.S. Films is an exhibition that will be taking place at the Pasadena Museum of California Art (PMCA) from August 20, 2017 through January 7, 2018. The exhibition assembles approximately 40 Cuban posters publicizing Hollywood films from the 1960s to 2009. Produced by the Cuban Institute of Cinematographic Art and Industry, the posters were part of an initiative of the revolutionary government to develop cultural awareness and consciousness after Fidel Castro and the guerrilla forces overthrew the dictatorship of Fulgenico Batista in 1959. Today, the posters stand independent of the films they represent. Their use of design elements continue to spark conversation and understanding about the role of film, culture, art, and politics in Cuba as well as California.

    Pacific Standard Time LA LA

    The exhibition is a part of the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA. Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA is a collaboration of art institutions across Southern California joining together to tell the story of the birth of the L.A. art scene. They explore Latin American and Latino art that involves more than 70 arts institutions across Southern California. They will present a wide variety of important works of art, much of them new to Southern California audiences. While the majority of exhibitions will have an emphasis on modern and contemporary art about the ancient world and the pre-modern era.
