Artist Profile

The Foundation for Art Resources (FAR) was founded in 1977 to facilitate the production and presentation of work by artists who challenge and expand the boundaries of established notions of art and art making.  FAR is a non-profit arts organization within Los Angeles that aims to act as a catalyst for activities that foster dialogue and interaction between artists and the public.  Since 1980, FAR has been the host of the longest running non-academic lecture series in Los Angeles featuring diverse topics such as "Anarchy, Art, and the Web," "Pornography as Male Popular Culture," and "How Cultural Identity Informs Criticism."  The unique nature of the organization allows for the non-profit to implement powerful non-traditional public artworks and its rotating board of directors continues to bring a fresh perspective to each project.
