Dozens of Los Angeles galleries will mount science-related shows for the Getty’s next PST Art programme

By Benjamin Sutton

This year’s edition of PST Art, the J. Paul Getty Trust’s recurring programme of exhibitions, events and scholarship, launches it's third edition on 15 September and looks at the intersections of art and science, featuring related shows at many of the city’s foremost galleries. While the entire lineup of gallery exhibitions that will be part of the PST Art programme has yet to be revealed, shows that are in store include Betye Saar exhibiting her large-scale, cyberpunk altar installation Mojotech (1987) at Roberts Projects, the dealer Jeffrey Deitch revisiting his major 1992-93 travelling exhibition Post Human and an exhibition dedicated to the environmental artists Newton and Helen Mayer Harrison at Various Small Fires.

“Galleries are a vital part of the art and culture ecosystem across the region, and their shows will pose more questions, offer more hypotheses and unearth more discoveries from some of the brightest and most thought-provoking artists working today,” Katherine E. Fleming, the president of the J. Paul Getty Trust, said in a statement.
