Quick Facts
Statement

BAILA is an acronym for Black Artists in Los Angeles.  We are an organized group of visual artists and friends who function pedagogically and professionally as a family.  BAILA exists as a perpetual social practice art project.  It performs as an educational networking art movement. The BAILA movement is orchestrated to illuminate the work and advance the careers of Black visual artists in the L.A. area. The work involves research, the facilitating of roundtables between BAILA and mainstream arts organizations, the curating of BAILA exhibitions, the hosting of art critiques and studio visits, the mentoring of BAILA adults and youth, and the archiving and publishing of BAILA happenings.  BAILA’s ultimate goal is to serve as a catalyst in the erasure of the gross marginalization of Black visual artists across the nation.  

The artwork featured on the main page is from the first edition of the BAILA zine.
