Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE)
LACE both champions and challenges the art of our time by fostering artists who innovate, explore, and risk. By moving within and beyond its four walls, LACE seeks to provide opportunities for diverse audiences to engage deeply with contemporary art. Uniquely positioned among commercial galleries and major art establishments at the heart of Hollywood, LACE has nurtured not only several generations of young artists, but also emerging art forms such as performance art, video art, digital art, and installations.
Funding support will be provided for Bold Visual Language: Emory Douglas, an exhibition that explores historical artistic innovations in social justice (Douglas was Minister of Culture for the Black Panther Party). The exhibit features photographic and video documentation of the Black Panther Party, as well as early and new artworks by Douglas and “Zapa-panther” artworks by Los Zapatistas artists. The installation runs June 27 through August 12, 2018.
