JOAN Los Angeles

Fund: $15,000

JOAN is a Los Angeles-based nonprofit art space for exhibitions, performances, and screenings. Founded in 2015 by three female curators, and inspired by the history of feminist performance spaces, JOAN supports experimental practices that exist outside of commercial contexts. Over the past seven years, JOAN has presented work by over 130 artists, the large majority of whom identify as women, non-binary or as members of the LGBTQ+ community, often supporting them in their production of larger-scale projects at key points in their careers. JOAN aims to enrich the communities they serve with free, public programming that is intellectually stimulating and that has creative, cultural and educational value.
