LACE matters because of its community.
Greetings from the LACE Team!
We are an organization and a physical space that unites us in the exploration of important and provocative art and ideas. We support access to culture for all in Los Angeles and revel in connecting with one another. As the longest-running contemporary artist space in Los Angeles, we invite you to become a member of LACE today or make a gift of any size in support of our mission.
Our 40th Anniversary year was a jam-packed year! Thanks to our 2018 collaborators we:
Explored The Mojave Desert, celebrated a Hollywood Boulevard Halloween, got creeped out by Marsian De Lellis’ dolls, honored Emory Douglas’ bold visual language, marveled at Young Joon Kawk’s vaginis ceiling, made zines with youth from My Friends Place, soared new heights with Carmina Escobar, howled with Snatch Power, laughed with Dino Dinco, studied with the CalArts Futurisms Research Group, remembered Sabina, resonated with C3LA’s a cappela song, dug for treasures in the LACE Archive, immersed ourselves in 4th Wall’s augmented reality, searched for lost tribes, celebrated Arts High students, breathed in a motorcycle concert, were mesmerized by Rachel Mason, witnessed Irish drama, remembered the lost with Adriana Corrall, got angry with Guillermo Gómez-Peña, discussed the election, MeToo, tenants’ rights, and indigenous histories, made ceramics with Barbara Kruger, meditated on Ed Ruscha’s Hollywood Boulevard, packed off the LACE Archives to The Getty, and celebrated our 40th Anniversary!
Our participants, collaborators, and supporters made this creative explosion possible. We look forward to seeing you soon!
With gratitude and friendship from the LACE Team,
Sarah Russin, Executive Director
