Westmont Ridley-Tree Museum of Art, 955 La Paz, Montecito, CA 93108Organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara, Guatemala from 33,000 km: Contemporary Art, 1960-Present brings together works that have rarely been seen beyond Guatemala, but that speak to a range of formal, political, and social concerns that permeate contemporary art both in Latin America and around the globe. This exhibition, part of the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative, marks the first ever in-depth commitment to the study of Guatemalan art in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, bringing innovative and visually arresting works produced by Guatemalan artists to a public audience in the United States and abroad.

Major support for Guatemala from 33,000 km is provided through grants from the Getty Foundation.
