ABOUT US

LAND (Los Angeles Nomadic Division) is a non-profit art organization founded in 2009 as a public art initiative committed to curating site- and situation-specific contemporary art projects in Los Angeles and beyond. LAND believes that everyone deserves the opportunity to experience innovative contemporary art in their day-to-day lives. In turn, artists deserve the opportunity to realize projects, otherwise unsupported, at unique sites in the public realm.

LAND supports dynamic and unconventional artistic practices using a tripartite approach:

  • Commissioning public projects of site- and situation-specific works with national and international contemporary artists
  • Collaborating with a variety of institutions and organizations, such as universities, museums, and theaters as well as other types of spaces, industries, and entities
  • Offering additional programs such as performances, workshops, residencies, discussions, and publications

LAND’s innovative exhibitions and programming structure features three main types, or scales, of programming:

  1. Large-scale, multi-site, multi-artist exhibitions (group thematic shows that exist over time and space)
  2. Monographic exhibitions or discrete group exhibitions
  3. One-night ephemeral performances and durational events
