LAND (Los Angeles Nomadic Division) is a non-profit art organization founded in 2009 by LAND Director/Curator Shamim M. Momin, former Contemporary Curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art, and Christine Y. Kim, Associate Curator of Contemporary Art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).
LAND is a public art initiative committed to curating site- and situation-specific contemporary art projects, in Los Angeles and beyond.
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 is an ongoing endeavor with three primary types of annual programming: LAND 1.0 projects are large-scale, multi-artist, multi-site exhibitions and single-site group exhibitions, LAND 2.0 projects feature a new commission by a single mid-career or established artist, and LAND 3.0 projects feature new work by lesser known or emerging artists.
