LAXART is a nonprofit visual art space that promotes developments in contemporary culture through exhibitions, publications, and public programs. It believes that contemporary art is a means of understanding key issues of our time with all their inherent contradictions. Contemporary art assumes many forms. Rather than provide answers, it raises questions. Through a range of offerings, it contextualizes contemporary art both socially and art historically. Its programs are free and designed to be accessible to the general public.
The Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant is launched as part of an arts writing initiative designed to support independent, progressive arts publications and individual arts writers.
