    Armory Center for the Arts joins the citywide Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative with the exhibition "Below the Underground: Renegade Art and Action in 1990s Mexico."

    This exhibition examines diverse independent artist initiatives – from newly acquired brick and mortar spaces, to ad hoc street performances and interventions, living room galleries, clubs, collaboratively produced ‘zines, archives and collections, pirate radio programs, and more. The project also references pronounced divisions of class, race, and gender, with art objects themselves the tangible outcomes of many different conditions of creating, living, and experimenting within the same place. 

    The Armory galleries are open daily from 12:00-5:00pm (closed Tuesdays).

    About Pacific Standard Time LA/LA

The landmark is handicap-accessible in all rooms of the first floor, including tea service in the ballroom, restrooms, sunroom, grand salon, Moorish and Turkish rooms, lobby, library, and ballroom, as well as from veranda and lawn.
