A Piece of the Pie (Chart)

If you visit the Art + Technology Lab this weekend, you'll be invited to participate in artist Annina Rüst's project, A Piece of the Pie Chart.

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. The Lab provides grants, in-kind support, and facilities at the museum to develop prototype projects. 

On December 9, 2014, the museum issued the call for proposals from artists interested in developing projects commencing in the spring of 2015. Awards will be announced in May, 2015.

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.
