Last week, our Art + Technology Lab team visited the Women’s Center for Creative Work to talk about its artist grant program and application process. In addition to learning about the Lab and its origins, guests had the opportunity to go over its call for proposals with Lab staff. 2017 grant recipient Julia Christensen also attended and gave an overview of her project Upgrade Available.
The Lab is currently accepting proposals for artist projects until February 21, 2018. We’re entering our fifth year and we plan to bring in at least six new artists to develop experimental projects that engage emerging technology over the course of 2018. Grants of up to $50,000 are available as well as in-kind support from the museum and private partners in technology and science.
Extensive experience working with technology is not required, and those interested should think beyond the traditional exhibition gallery presentation. We are interested in projects that take risks and experiment with ideas, materials, and methods coming from science and technology and provide a way for the public to participate in the process through talks, performances, and presentations.
The Art + Technology Lab is presented by:
The program is made possible by Accenture, with additional support from Google and SpaceX.
The Lab is a part of The Hyundai Project: Art + Technology at LACMA, a joint initiative exploring the convergence of art and technology.
