Dear Friend of LACE—
As we approach Thanksgiving we offer our sincerest thanks for your support.
2018 marks the 40th Anniversary of LACE – the longest-running artist space in Los Angeles! Whether you have been following our programming for the last few years or following for the last 40 years – please consider making a year-end gift in support of our trailblazing community of artists. Below are highlights from our celebration of this milestone.
We kick off the New Year with LACE’s signature Emerging Curators Program exhibition Names Printed in Black. A trio of international collaborations follows as LACE hosts Mexico City-based Colectivo AM as part of the PST Performance Festival, FLAX (French Los Angeles Exchange)’s accelerating motorcycles, and Dublin-based performance artists.
Celebrating LACE’s history, Matias Viegener curates a special installation Exploring the Archives, and introducing the next generation of artists, LACE hosts the annual student exhibition of the LA County HS for the Arts. Save May 30th for LACE’s big annual Benefit Art Auction held Downtown at Vibiana.
LACE’s signature Summer Artist-in-Residence project engages LA-based Young Joon Kwak and Mutant Salon to bombard the main gallery with a maximalist “Queer/Trans Femme Cave” while the Storefront features Bold Visual Language: Emory Douglas, exploring the collective artwork of the Black Panther movement. The exhibition calendar rounds out in fall 2018 with The Mohave Project presented by Warhol Curatorial Fellow Kim Stringfellow.
For the first time in ten years, LACE will offer a limited edition artwork created in collaboration with an iconic LA artist – stay tuned for the launch announcement in 2018 – as well as news of other celebrations and LACE’s 40th birthday party!
We look forward to welcoming you to LACE and thank you for making your gift today!
Happy Thanksgiving from the LACE Team:
Sarah Russin, Executive Director
Fiona Ball, Assistant Director
Daniela Lieja Quintanar, Curator
