Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE)
Los Angeles, United States
As the longest-running incubator for contemporary artists and curators in Los Angeles, LACE has been playing a unique role in the city’s art scene for 40 over years. Founded in 1978 by a core group of committed artists, LACE is a nonprofit venue ideally located in the heart of Hollywood where it has been serving as a cultural anchor for more than 20 years.
It has presented the work of more than 5,000 artists in 3,000 programs and events, providing the impetus for dialogue about contemporary art and culture. Some figures who received early support from LACE include Mike Kelley, John Baldessari, Bill Viola, Adrian Piper, Gronk, Jibade-Khalil Huffman, Jimena Sarno, Rafa Esparza, Young Joon Kwak, and Sandra de la Loza.
Today as ever, LACE keeps expanding its experimental spirit and legacy of presenting groundbreaking and socially engaged art. In its mission to support artists, LACE acts as a communal center to further dialogue and participation between the cultural community and a wide and diverse audience from passers-by, to art students and Angelenos living nearby.
