On Saturday November 6, 2021, notables from the art, film, fashion, and entertainment industries will gather at LACMA for its tenth annual Art+Film Gala honoring influential American artists Amy Sherald and Kehinde Wiley along with Academy Award-winning filmmaker Steven Spielberg. LACMA trustee Eva Chow and actor Leonardo DiCaprio will co-chair the event for the tenth consecutive year.
Past honorees of the Art+Film Gala include artists Betye Saar, Catherine Opie, Mark Bradford, Robert Irwin, James Turrell, Barbara Kruger, David Hockney, Ed Ruscha, and John Baldessari, and filmmakers Alfonso Cuarón, Guillermo del Toro, George Lucas, Kathryn Bigelow, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Quentin Tarantino, Martin Scorsese, Stanley Kubrick, and Clint Eastwood.
Proceeds from the annual Art+Film Gala go toward underwriting LACMA’s initiative to make film more central to the museum’s curatorial programming, while also funding LACMA’s broader mission. This includes exhibitions, acquisitions, and educational programming, in addition to screenings that explore the intersection of art and film.
The Art+Film Gala is once again made possible by Gucci’s longstanding and generous support.
