Grants of up to $50,000 and in-kind support to USA, Canada, and International individuals and teams for projects that use emerging technology for artistic purposes. This program supports innovative new projects and offers the input of experts in a range of STEM fields. Projects may explore ideas related to technology and culture.

Grants may provide financial support of up to $50,000 per project to cover artist fees and direct costs, including materials. Recipients may also receive in-kind support, such as mentorship, coaching, advice, and exposure to technologies in development at partner organizations, including Hyundai, Accenture, Google, SpaceX, and Gensler, as well as independent artists and academics working in art and technology from Jet Propulsion Laboratory, UCLA, UC Berkeley, and elsewhere.

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 work are encouraged to consider how technology applications might build upon and expand the trajectory of their work.

Recipients need not be located in or near Los Angeles. The Lab welcomes proposals for projects that are presented outside the bounds of the museum campus, including conceptual projects and those that unfold in virtual or online space, or in other geographic or extraterrestrial locations.

This program 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.

This program also welcomes proposals that utilize museum resources, including access to data, material from our archives, information about our collection, and the use of museum digital properties as a platform for presenting projects, though that is not a requirement.

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

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.

Applicants may request a grant amount up to $50,000.

All costs included in the project budget must be expended during the period of support, typically within 12 months of the initial award.

Art + Technology Lab grants are open to individuals and collectives located anywhere in the world. Artists need not be based in Southern California.

Students are eligible to apply and the Art + Technology Lab is open to collaborative proposals with students on the team.

Requests must be submitted electronically via the application portal by 11:59 PM on February 22, 2017.

All applicants will be notified by email regarding the status of their application in April.
