Referencing the title of a genre-bending collection of stories by Jorge Luis Borges, A Universal History of Infamy uses multiple venues across Los Angeles, including the LACMA campus, to present new works by more than 15 boundary-defying artists and collectives.


Developed for the most part through residencies, the works represent artists who live and practice in several countries; adopt methods from disciplines such as anthropology, theater, and linguistics; mingle research with visual art; and work across a range of media, from installation and sculpture to performance and video. A Universal History of Infamy embraces the collaborative spirit of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, bringing together one of the largest partners, LACMA, with one of the smallest, the 18th Street Arts Center in Santa Monica, which organized the residencies.
