LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions) fosters artists who innovate, experiment, explore and risk. We move within and beyond our four walls to provide opportunities for diverse publics to engage deeply with contemporary art. In doing so, we further dialogue between and participation among artists and those audiences. Since 1978, LACE has nurtured several generations of young and under- recognized artists, and championed newly emerging art forms such as installation- based work, performance art and video art.

LACE programs reflect the organization’s abiding interest in the creative process as much as the product. We believe this transforms the art experience from passive to active. LACE understands the importance of making time for artists to encounter each other and work together in a peer-to- peer setting. This environment allows for discovery and collaboration. For creative practices ranging from non-object oriented work to highly developed new media projects, there must be time and space within an art context that brings together artists and audiences to create the work, or else it would not exist.
