Mat Johnson on Twitter: "I love Pacific Standard Time. You wake up and three hours of the American day are already over, the rest is done by 3pm. After that the west coast is basically an afterparty."

World's Smallest Contemporary Museum Journeys to L.A. | KCET
When Nuevo Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (or NuMu, for short) was born in 2012, artists Jessica Kairé and Stefan Benchoam meant this ovoid structure to challenge visitors’ notions of what a museum should be in the 21st century. Within an intimate 6.5 by 8.2 feet, this unconventional art museum has hosted more than 15 exhibitions and numerous public programs, while only accommodating up to four people at a time. It is the world’s smallest contemporary art museum. Take a look inside this unusual art space and hear from its founders, as they recreate the museum in Guatemala and take their concept on the road to Los Angeles for Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA.

Swimming with the stars - Five-Minute Museum - Salon.com
"When I started thinking about it … I realized that in many ways, in the post-war period, Southern California was the ideal of what the American dream was going to look like. At the center of that was the swimming pool, and suburban expansion, and the concept of everybody living in this place that didn’t have the danger of nature, but had all the benefits of the natural landscape. A place that was away from the city, but at the same time felt domesticated. I started thinking about the pool as the central icon of that both real and imaginary place. And it grew from there."

An LA-centric take on modernism - Salon.com
"Forget the Rose Parade; the real reason to be in LA right now is “Pacific Standard Time”… the arts program, not just the zone.

A six-month “happening” that kicked off in October, PST is the largest collaborative art project ever undertaken in Southern California. More than 60 museums, galleries and other institutions allow us to immerse ourselves in the various creative scenes that were exploding and expanding all around Los Angeles from the 1940s through to the ’80s.

PST’s primary focus is on the fine arts, but the exhibitions and events offer plenty for the design-minded as well. There are also scads of show catalogs for the print-oriented to peruse.

Here’s a sampling of a few of the lavishly illustrated books recently published in conjunction with all the events."
