About Us

Founded in 2005, LAXART is a non-profit art exhibition space open Tuesday through Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The public is invited at all times. Admission is free.

A platform for emerging and under-recognized talent, its mission has expanded to encompass thematic exhibitions that engage with key issues of our time.

For more information, please call 323.871.4140.

We are not accepting artist submissions at this time.


LAXART's mission is to support contemporary art through exhibitions and related programming. Our audience is defined by its curiosity about anything and everything. Contemporary art assumes many forms. Rather than provide answers, it raises questions. Where art leads, we follow.
