In the Los Angeles art show "How to Read El Pato Pascual," Latinx artists confront Walt Disney and his cartoon creations.
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 more than 70 cultural institutions across Southern California. Pacific Standard Time is an initiative of the Getty.
