Twenty different galleries from around the world are coming together to form a unique group art exhibition in Los Angeles this fall. The exhibition will coincide with the Getty Foundation-funded exhibition series, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, which explores Latin American and Latino art.

According to News Artnet, The collaboration is named "proyectosLA" and will be hosting 20 different galleries from around the world on a six-week long period time. The pop-up group art exhibition aims to benefit from the excitement surrounding the Getty-organized initiative Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA.

Teresa Iturralde, the co-founder of the art-exhibition thinks the pop-up will benefit from the period when the city is down with "Latin American art fever". Starting from mid-September, the art exhibition will provide an opportunity to the collectors and the galleries to know each other as well as the city of Los Angeles.

According to Los Angeles Times, the art exhibition will bring together galleries from Central, South and North America. Also, there will be renowned international outfits like Galeria Vermelho and Galeria Nara Roesler from Brazil as well as emerging upstarts such as Proyectos Ultravioleta of Guatemala. The other participants completing the list will be Revolver Galería from Peru, Galería OMR and joségarcía from Mexico, Mendes Wood DM from Brazil, Cecilia de Torres from downtown Manhattan and Henrique Faria from Buenos Aires and New York.

The founders of this art exhibition want to make it a long lasting and something more than an art fair that will see no boundaries. As a result, they have organized the pop-up at a 20,000-square-foot warehouse in Los Angeles's Chinatown. The founders of "proyectosLA" have roped in two renowned curators Luisa Teixeira and Claudia Segura to organize the art exhibition based on a theme of "no boundaries". Mexican architect Ezequiel Farca has also been given the job to produce a pop-up restaurant at the exhibition space.

This art exhibition consisting of different galleries around the world could be a very fresh and something new for Los Angeles. The co-founder of "proyectosLA" and an art advisor, Teresa Iturralde said "There are so many important exhibitions that don't travel here. But Los Angeles is the most important Latin American city. This will really be an opportunity to see something new."
