In working with nonprofits for the better part of a decade now, I've had good experiences and I've had great experiences. Working with LAND was definitely the greatest experience I've had in this field. Shamim Momin and staff are incredibly well organized. They excel in communication and execution. LAND plays a pivotal role in the artistic landscape of Los Angeles and beyond. It is with wholehearted conviction that I stand behind LAND and will support them in whatever capacity they require of me. You should too.

LAND is a powerful entity in not only the not-for-profit realm but the overall cultural landscape of Los Angeles. The organization does a wonderful job of promoting local artists an engaging the local constituency, but they also spread their important dialogs concerning LA to other areas like Mexico, Texas, and New York. The team is dedicated and approachable, they make you want to get involved and support the Los Angeles arts community.

LAND is one of the most innovative non-profits, producing events that probably wouldn't happen otherwise. Their interest in site specificity, mobility and their ability to create interesting viewing opportunities is something that is rare, and Los Angeles is lucky to be their headquarters. I am currently working with LAND now and it has been an amazing experience. They have been with me every step of the way to aid me in seeing my vision through to its fruition. Getting to perform my Astrology Orchestra at the Integratron is a dream and I wouldn't have been able to do it without LAND. I am really grateful to their team and am excited to work on a culminating show with them as well. They are really dedicated to pioneering unchartered territory.

LAND is an invaluable resource to the art community in Los Angeles and elsewhere. Their level of commitment to artists is unfailing. Art is always changing and as an organization that selects its location based on the needs of a specific project LAND is on the forefront of helping rethink how art can be experienced and what art can be. I’ve worked with LAND on multiple projects, most in depth I spent a month creating new works on site in Marfa, TX, and in producing a monograph that covers a decade of my work. Both of these experiences were life changing. It is so rare to work with people who say YES instead of no that’s not possible. LAND offers a needed freedom and deep support system allowing artists to break through to new levels in their practices. They offer support and opportunities to expand ones work in ways I have rarely experienced before.

Making art that matters. That's how I describe LAND. LAND has been vital to bringing art ideas to life for a broader public and civic engagement. LAND is one of the reasons why LA has become one of the most important engines for art production in LA. Their programs abroad (Marfa, Miami, etc.) are equally exciting and inspiring. We would do well to support them and their great work!

LAND is one of the premier art nonprofits in Los Angeles. I've been privileged to attend a few of their programs--an historic Pacific Standard Time exhibition held in a strip mall, a Zoe Crosher event at Chateau Marmont (which I wrote about for Art21), and a studio visit (and upcoming performance) with Katie Grinnan--and each one has been smartly conceived and put together. LAND works with important artists within the iconic and multifaceted landscape of the city to create programming is imaginative, stimulating, and highly relevant. They are a nomadic treasure!
