I never miss an opportunity to write about Los Angeles, my hometown. And so I was particularly thrilled when I had the chance to report on the city's mushrooming art scene for Monocle. The laid-back nature of LA makes viewing art--whether in a gallery or a museum--an entirely different experience than the one I typically have in New York City. Hopefully this article helps explain why.

Now is an excellent time for those longing to understand the history of the LA art scene to visit the city as the Getty Foundation and Research Institute just launched Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945–1980, which features over forty concurrent exhibitions across Southern California documenting the "emergence of Los Angeles as an international nexus of contemporary art after World War II."
