The Art + Technology Lab is located in LACMA’s newly renovated Balch Research Library, transformed to house the project thanks to support from the Los Angeles County Productivity Investment Fund. The area is used for hands-on workshops and public programs, including talks and demonstrations by artists and technologists in residence. Additional Art + Technology programming will take place throughout the campus, including lectures, film screenings and activities for students and families.
