Mission

 

Free Admission +
Open To the Public


 

LAXART is a nonprofit visual art space that promotes developments in contemporary culture through exhibitions, publications, and public programs.

Founded in 2005 as a platform for emerging and under-recognized talent, LAXART has expanded its mission to encompass thematic exhibitions that engage with key issues of our time.

We believe 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, we contextualize contemporary art both socially and discursively.
