The Los Angeles County Museum of Art has issued an RFP for its Art + Technology Lab grant program, which will support projects that explore artistic applications of emerging technologies and ideas related to technology and culture and offer 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.
Financial support of up to $50,000 per project will be awarded 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, Snap, Inc., SpaceX, and Google, as well as independent artists and academics working in art and technology from the MIT Media Lab Space Exploration Initiative, and NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
There is a preference for projects that explore emerging technology, though 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. The lab invites proposals for projects presented outside the museum campus's bounds, including conceptual projects and projects that unfold in virtual, online, extraterrestrial locations. Preference will also be given to project proposals that include public demonstrations and engagement with the museum’s audience.
