Art + Technology Lab 2021 Information Session

February 2, 2021

On Thursday, February 11, at 5 pm, the Art + Technology Lab will host a virtual informational session, in conjunction with the Women's Center for Creative Work (WCCW), discussing the Lab's artist grant program and application process. The event will provide an overview of the Art + Technology Lab program, its current open call for proposals, and highlight a few of its past and current projects. The event will feature a short presentation by 2020 grant recipient Virginia San Fratello, and will conclude with a question and answer period.

The deadline to apply for an artist grant is February 25, 2021. Grants of up to $50,000 are available as well as in-kind support from the museum and organizations 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 from science and technology, and provide a way for the public to participate in the process through talks, performances, and presentations.

Please read our RFP for more information. Questions about the program or the application process may be directed to lab@lacma.org.

The event will take place online via Zoom and will also be live-streamed via YouTube. Those who wish to participate in the Q&A period should RSVP to participate via Zoom.
