After eight years of operation and countless shows premiering local and international artists the Los Angeles Center For Digital Art continues its evolution with a March relocation.

In what Director/ gallerist Rex Bruce describes as “a huge step forward,” LACDA continues its commitment to digital art and artists with a move to bigger premises in the former Bert Green Gallery space on the corner of 5th and Main downtown.

Asked about the significance of the move after two previous Los Angeles locations, Bruce said the gallery aims to elevate its profile both locally and internationally, “with a series of high visibility exhibits featuring established and emerging names.”

First on the LACDA agenda for its March premier show will be the digital photography of LA artist Pete Jackson. His sensational panoramas of the L.A. basin shot in infrared with uncanny detail. Also on display will be the winner of an LACDA juried show, judged by LACMA curator Edward Robinson, the electronic pop art of Devon Paulson and a melding of sound and performance by LA based artist Treops Treyfid.

Bruce says the new space affords the museum to have several exhibits running simultaneously. Future exhibitions will see big names including Joel -Peter Witkin, Mark Mothersbough and John Baldessari in a forthcoming conceptual show “Analogue to Digital,” that will explore connections between the two forms.
