It opens this weekend and remains on view through January 28, 2018. The exhibition, which explores themes that emphasize Argentina’s history, features nearly 300 works, including many recent Getty acquisitions. The fantastic catalogue was published by Getty Publications. Amazon offers it for $45. “Photography in Argentina” is one of the scores of “Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA” exhibitions opening around southern California this month.

On the second segment, Hammer Museum curator Anne Ellegood discusses her exhibition “Jimmie Durham: At the Center of the World.” The exhibition, the first US retrospective of Durham’s work in 20 years, is at the Walker Art Center through October 7. This segment was recorded in February, 2017 for the Los Angeles presentation of the show.
