Highways Performance Space & Gallery is Southern California’s boldest center for new performance, film, and visual art. In its 33rd year, Highways continues to be an important alternative cultural center in Los Angeles that encourages radical artists from diverse communities to develop and present innovative new work. Described by the Los Angeles Times as, “a hub of experimental theater, dance, solo drama and other multimedia performance.” Highways promotes the development of contemporary socially involved artists and art forms.
Their mission is to develop and present innovative performance, film, and visual art; promote interaction among people of diverse cultural backgrounds; and engage artists and the communities they serve in cross-cultural dialogues about social, cultural, and artistic issues. Leo Garcia is the Executive Director, and Patrick Kennelly is the Artistic Director.
