Pacific Standard Time Performance and Public Art Festival @ The Getty

"On Friday, January 20, 2012, the Getty Museum will present performance artist Hirokazu Kosaka and the Los Angeles Free Music Society in an evening event that will kick off the Pacific Standard Time Performance and Public Art Festival.

Kosaka’s sculptural and performative installation Kalpa will transform the Getty Center’s Tram Arrival Plaza with an enormous spotlight, Butoh dancers and hundreds of spools of colorful thread placed on a wall designed by architect Michael Rotondi.
In Sanskrit, kalpa means eon—a long period of time. In this performance, Kosaka builds a symbolic parallel between kalpa and the inevitable passage of time that slowly transforms lives, histories and memories.

Kalpa and LAFMS Shoe will be presented on Friday, January 20, 2012, beginning at 7:00 p.m., outdoors at the Getty Center. The events are free, but reservations are required and are available beginning Tuesday, December 20, 2011 at 9:00 a.m. For reservations or more information, visit or call (310) 440-7300."
