Founded in 1978 by a core group of committed artists, LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions) is an internationally recognized pioneer among art institutions for its values: a dedication to the art of our time that focuses on freedom of expression; experimentation with ideas, materials, and new forms; and content that is challenging and socially engaging.
Uniquely positioned among commercial galleries and major art establishments at the heart of Hollywood as a free, open-to-the-public experimental space, LACE has nurtured several generations of young artists and supported innovations in art-making and public engagement, like the then-emerging art forms of performance art, video art, digital art, and installations. LACE presents significant and timely exhibitions, performances, and public projects, which are complemented by education initiatives.
In over 40 years of consistent, high-quality programming, LACE has consistently given voice to the visions of Los Angeles’ diverse makers and curators. Today, they have 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 of today’s most influential figures who received early support from LACE include Mike Kelley, John Baldessari, Bill Viola, Adrian Piper and Gronk.
