The Los Angeles County Museum of Art has announced its 2014 Art + Film Gala, set to take place on Nov. 1, honoring artist Barbara Kruger and filmmaker Quentin Tarantino.
“LACMA is the intersection of art and film in Los Angeles,” said Michael Govan, LACMA CEO and Wallis Annenberg director. “In the last four years we have mounted eight film exhibitions, collaborated with the Academy and Film Independent, and honored some of the greatest artists and filmmakers of our time. Barbara Kruger and Quentin Tarantino have both created indelible, unforgettable images which will spark imaginations for years to come.”
Celebrating its fourth year, the Art + Film Gala is co-chaired by LACMA trustee Eva Chow and Leonardo DiCaprio, who champion the museum’s film initiatives. Gucci is a sponsor for the annual event, with creative director Frida Giannini as gala host committee chair.
“LACMA’s unparalleled commitment to honoring fine art alongside film in the heart of Los Angeles is an inspiration to Gucci,” Giannini said. “We are proud to support LACMA’s unique vision, and to join Eva Chow, Michael Govan, and Leonardo DiCaprio for the fourth year as we celebrate two truly innovative, inspiring and influential artists, Barbara Kruger and Quentin Tarantino.”
