Lara Bank is an artist, professor, and gallery director working within the Los Angeles area. She produces primarily conceptualist artwork in a variety of mediums. She defines much of her work as place artwork. Place artwork is art that creates and defines a spatial location to be occupied by the artwork, statements, and thoughts of others. This involves primarily context development and collaboration. Other projects operate as installation, painting, interactive work, sculptural and video art.

Bank received an MFA in Studio Art from Cal Arts in 1998 and an MFA in Painting from the University of Maryland at College Park in 1996. She is the Executive Director and founder of Sea and Space Explorations, a place artwork that operates as a non-profit gallery.

Her work has been shown and collected within the following venues: Woodbury Hollywood Exhibitions, LA; Weingard Gallery at Occidental College, LA; Another Year In LA, LA; Monte Vista Projects, LA; Aurora Picture Show, TX; Hangar 1018, LA; Machine Gallery, LA; Foundation For Art Resources, LA; Crazy Space Gallery, Santa Monica; White Box Gallery, Marina Del Rey; ISEA2004 Inter-Society for the Electronic Arts, Helsinki, Stockholm, and Tallinn; Bodybuilder & Sportsman Gallery, Chicago; LA Municipal Art Gallery, LA; Barnsdall Art Park, LA; Fancyland, CA; Andrewshire Gallery, LA,; Centro Nacional de Artes (National Center for the Arts) San Salvador, El Salvador; LA Freewaves, LA; Side Street Projects, LA; Huntington Beach Art Center, CA; Viridian Artist Inc., NYC; Bromfield Gallery Boston, MA.
