was presented as part of Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-80, an unprecedented collaboration of cultural institutions across Southern California coming together to celebrate the birth of the L.A. art scene. As the festival moved throughout the city, visitors were also surrounded by dozens of groundbreaking exhibitions about the history of art in Southern California.
Art in the Parking Space, a year-long project by Warren Neidich and Elena Bajo, invited artists to create temporary and ephemeral artworks in parking spaces across Los Angeles. Each work reflects different environments and sets of cultural parameters that define the Los Angeles basin. Public and private spaces are occupied, from a large parking lot to a collector's driveway. In celebration of the Pacific Standard Time Performance and Public Art Festival, Art in the Parking Space produced an event at The Standard Hotel in West Hollywood.
