Contemporary Art Review Los Angeles (Carla) is a quarterly magazine, online art journal, and podcast committed to being an active source for critical dialogue surrounding Los Angeles’ art community. Carla serves as a centralized space for art writing that is bold, honest, approachable, and focused on the here and now.
Carla is independent, grassroots, and artist-founded. At Carla, our primary intent is to support and serve the broad art community of Los Angeles through critical discussion of the issues most pressing to that community. We aim to provide an alternative vision of art criticism that is connecting and approachable, and advocates for a vision of the art world that is equitable and inclusive. 
Carla Community is a branch of Carla that specifically focuses on connecting with our local community and seeks to connect our magazine's content with the broad demographic of Los Angeles, as well as consider broader engagements with our community that celebrate the rich diversity of the arts in Los Angeles.
