Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE)

Pasadena Art Alliance

Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (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 in 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.

The grant will support an Emerging Curator exhibition entitled Reclaiming Performance: A Revolutionary Act, curated by Cat Jones in Spring 2022. The exhibition will focus on Black Queer artistry and will consist of a series of performances where the gallery space will be transformed into a recreation center with dance, movement, and poetry from Jaden Fields, Aasir Cherot, Danni Cassette and Dr. Daniel B. Coleman.
