LA Existancial is a group show curated Curated by Marie de Brugerolle. It features more than 15 artists from Los Angeles, France and the rest of the world. It will open in January and run through March 2013.
Since 1978, LACE has fostered artists who innovate, experiment, explore, and risk. We move
within and beyond our four walls to provide opportunities for diverse audiences to deeply engage
with contemporary art. In doing so, we further connect the dialogue and participation between and among the artists and these audiences.
Founded in 1978 by a small group of artists, LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions) has
become an internationally recognized pioneer among art institutions. Uniquely positioned
among commercial galleries and major art establishments, our nonprofit organization
provides a local venue that advocates and exhibits innovations in art-making. By encouraging
experimentation, LACE has nurtured not only several generations of young artists, but also
newly emerging art forms such as performance art, video art, digital art, and installation-based
work. LACE has presented the work of over 5,000 artists in over 3,000 programs and events,
which have provided the impetus for dialogue about contemporary arts and culture for over 30
Artists include: John Baldessari, Julien Bismuth, Emily Mast, Sophie Bonnet-Pourpet, Guy de Cointet, JP Flavien, Andrea Fraser, Dora Garcia, Clara Gensburger, Elsa Bourdot, Brennan Gerard & Ryan Kelly, Jimmy Robert, Michaël Salvi, Benjamin Seror, Lucille Uhlrich, Simon Bergala, Jessica Warboys, Morten Halvorsen, Veridiana Zurita.
LA Existancial is made possible by LACE with the participation of the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts de Lyon and the FLAX Foundation.
