Inspired by the spirit of LACMA's original Art and Technology program (1967-1971), which paired artists with technology companies in Southern California, the Art + Technology Lab at LACMA supports artist experiments with emerging technology.

To date, more than a dozen artists from around the world, including Ghana, Ireland, Korea, Mexico, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Switzerland, have received awards through the Art + Technology Lab.

The 2017 request for proposals is now closed. We anticipate issuing our next call in December, 2017.

Project documentation, ranging from code repositories to video archives and project websites, are available here.
