Los Angeles Contemporary Archive (LACA)

Los Angeles Contemporary Archive is an artist-run archive and non-circulating library in which contemporary creative processes are recorded and preserved. Our goal is the study and dissemination of materials documenting contemporary art production. Challenging established concepts of the archive and art space, LACA sustains a unique experimental environment for critical inquiry, artistic research, and public dialogue. LACA is a registered nonprofit organization.

Our mission is to offer a comprehensive view into artistic activity today. Unlike most traditional archives that document a selective past, our collection emphasizes the contemporary moment. In keeping with this, LACA only acquires materials produced around or after its founding in 2013. Our collection emphasizes art from Los Angeles, though is not limited to it as we acknowledge Los Angeles’ increasing engagement with artist networks internationally.
