Our mission is to create new opportunities for women in the contemporary arts as an incubator for female cultural expression. Gender disparity remains one of the most pervasive and widespread problems in the art world. LAR seeks to find a solution by embarking on innovative curatorial and educational programming that offers international female artists an unprecedented platform for creating, exhibiting, and thinking about their work. Using a collaborative curatorial and managerial model, LAR will offer invited artists the freedom of a gallery context, while functioning as an organization with the social and scholarly mission of a museum.
