Scripps College Professor of Art Ken Gonzales-Day’s works on identity and the construction of race are the subject of LA Weekly‘s featured video interview as the Getty Foundation‘s expansive arts initiative Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA opens in dozens of cultural institutions across Southern California. Gonzales-Day’s photography, which will will be on display in PST: LA/LA exhibitions at the Skirball Cultural Center, the Luis De Jesus Los Angeles gallery, and the Guggenheim Gallery at Chapman University, provides glimpses into the complexities of Latin American life and culture and expands on his earlier works exploring racial tensions in America. The Lancaster Museum of Art and History opens its PST: LA/LA exhibition, which also features Gonzales-Day’s work, on November 11.

Art critic Edward Goldman has also recently featured Gonzales-Day’s work at Luis De Jesus Gallery on KCRW-FM and in the Huffington Post.
