Grant Description
Grants of up to $50,000 and in-kind support to USA, Canada, and International individual artists and collectives for experimental art projects that explore ideas in culture and technology. Funding is intended to provide artists with financial support for new projects as well as in-kind contributions from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and private partners in technology and science.

The Art + Technology Lab supports projects that explore artistic applications of emerging technologies and ideas related to technology and culture. The program offers artists and artist collectives financial and in-kind support for new projects, with the help of expert partners from the fields of science, technology, and engineering.

While there is a preference for projects that explore emerging technology, prior technological experience or knowledge is not required. Artists who have not used advanced technology in their practice are encouraged to consider how technology applications might build upon and expand the trajectory of their work. 

Preference is given to project proposals that include some aspect of public demonstration and engagement with the museum’s audience. Project budgets may include travel for this purpose.

LACMA is particularly interested in exploratory ideas and proposals that leave room for refinement in collaboration with technologists and the museum. In addition, preference will be given to projects that are publicly accessible, consistent with LACMA’s mission, and produce models, prototypes, data, code, or other material that can be shared broadly.

LACMA also welcomes proposals that utilize museum resources, including access to data, material from their archives, information about their collection, and the use of museum digital properties as a platform for presenting projects. With respect to these resources, a current focus is how Web3 could manifest itself in the museum.

In general, applicants are encouraged to think beyond the traditional in-gallery exhibition presentation, to consider other possibilities and forms of public engagement.


Additional Eligibility Criteria
Art + Technology Lab grants are open to individuals and collectives located anywhere in the world.

Recipients need not be located in or near Los Angeles.

The Lab welcomes proposals for projects that are presented outside of the bounds of the museum campus, including conceptual projects and projects that unfold in virtual, online, extraterrestrial locations.
