LOS ANGELES—  Visualizing Language: Oaxaca in L.A. is an exhibition and programming series—presented by the Library Foundation of Los Angeles in conjunction with the Los Angeles Public Library—as part of the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time: Latin America/Los Angeles initiative. The exhibit will be on view at the Los Angeles Central Library starting September 16, 2017 through August 2018. Visualizing Language will celebrate the rich social fabric of Los Angeles through the lens of the city’s vibrant Oaxacan community, particularly focusing on the Zapotec community. Featuring newly-commissioned work by the Oaxacan artist collective Tlacolulokos, the murals will explore language and culture as a key lifeline sustaining the shared experience between Mexico, Los Angeles, and beyond. Audiences will have the opportunity to participate in over 70 programs at neighborhood libraries across the city and at the ALOUD series throughout the exhibition period. The exhibit is free to the public and validated parking is available next to the library.
