REDCAT, a center for contemporary performing, visual and media arts, introduces diverse audiences and artists to the most influential developments in the arts from throughout the world and provides Los Angeles artists with opportunities to develop new work. Opened in 2003 by the California Institute of the Arts, REDCAT is located in the Frank Gehry-designed Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles. REDCAT features a flexible black-box performance space with 200 to 270 seats and a 3,000 sq. ft. exhibition space.
REDCAT’s programming values artists who blur the boundaries between artistic disciplines, cross international borders in their collaborations, experiment with artistic traditions and invent or use new technology in developing new forms of expression. As many as 200 events are presented each year, including performances, screenings, discussions, readings and exhibitions. Most artists are selected 12 to 18 months in advance. The gallery director and curator oversee the exhibition programs.
