Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions

LACE both champions and challenges the art of our time by fostering artists who innovate, 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 and participation between and among artists and those audiences.

    Feeding the Arts and Culture Workers Pipeline

    Founded by artists in 1978, LACE is the longest-running incubator for contemporary art in LA. We are building on 2 successful programs: the Emerging Curator Program and the Apprenticeship Program. LACE is committed to emerging artists, curators, and cultural workers, and this initiative will deepen mentorship and offer paid opportunities to emerging creatives often expected to gain work experience in the field with little to no pay. With this project, LACE will change the inequitable pipeline for the artistic workforce.
