Julia Christensen on "Upgrade Available"

Later this fall, Art + Technology Lab grant recipient Julia Christensen will be in Los Angeles to work on her project Upgrade Available. She'll be participating in a special meeting at Jet Propulsion Laboratory to envision an artwork for a long-term interstellar space mission and will also be "in residence" at LACMA, where she will discuss her ideas with scientists, engineers, designers, artists, and...

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. Through our sponsors, the Lab provides grants, in-kind support, and facilities at the museum to develop new artist projects. To date, 20 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 Art + Technology Lab 2019 request for proposals (RFP) will open in mid-December, 2018.

Signal Tide at the Art + Technology Lab

Signal Tide is a sound and extraterrestrial radio installation artwork by Kovács/O’Doherty. It combines real-time signals from an abandoned satellite currently orbiting the earth (the LES-1, launched in 1965) with specially commissioned music and sound, created by David Bryant (of Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Hiss Tracts), Drew Barnet, and James Hamilton, in collaboration with Kovács/O’Doherty.
