LA ART GIRLS BIO:

The LA Art Girls evolved from informal gatherings,
which started in 2004, as a means of encouraging
discourse on contemporary art and as a way to
introduce artists to other artists. The intentions of
the LA Art Girls are to provide inspiration, support,
dialogue and feedback to one another. As a body, LA
Art Girls recognizes the autonomy of its members and
resists the articulation of a coherent group identity
or central theme. The group strives to be a voluntary
and non-hierarchical gathering of practices. While the
LA Art Girls started as a discussion group, it has
evolved to embody a variety of different roles. The LA
Art Girls have made collective artworks, we have shown individual work in group shows, we have curated shows, hosted panel discussions, and soon, a radio show. The LA Art Girls have done projects with QED gallery, Anna Helwing Gallery, The Getty Center, and LACE. Upcoming projects include a Radio Show for KBCH in Long Beach, and a group exhibition in the project room at Angles. While there are over 30 members of the LA Art Girls at this time, a lesser number participates in the collaborative projects on a self-selecting basis.
