Gucci Helps LACMA Celebrate Its 9th Annual Art+Film Gala
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art hosted its ninth annual Art+Film Gala on Saturday, honoring artist Betye Saar and filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón. Co-chaired by Eva Chow and Leonardo DiCaprio, the evening brought together more than 800 distinguished guests from the worlds of art, film, fashion, and more. This year’s gala raised more than $4.6 million for LACMA’s film initiatives, future exhibitions, acquisitions, and programming.

“We honored two incredibly powerful artistic voices this year,” said Michael Govan, LACMA CEO and Wallis Annenberg director. “Betye Saar has helped define the genre of Assemblage art for nearly seven decades, and recognition of her as one of the most important and influential artists working today is long overdue. Alfonso Cuarón, one of the great storytellers of our time, is able to bring deep humanity to any story he chooses to portray.”

The evening began with a cocktail reception before moving on to a seated dinner by Joachim Splichal of Patina Restaurant Group. John Legend and Ted Sarandos presented tributes to Saar and Cuarón, respectively. Later, Will Ferrell invited guests to head outdoors, where Billie Eilish introduced performers Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals.

As in previous years, the Gala was supported by Gucci (the majority of attendees — including Saar, Cuarón, .Paak, Eilish, Laura Dern, Ava DuVernay, Greta Gerwig, Regina King, Brie Larson, Salma Hayek Pinault, Zoe Saldana, Yara Shahidi, and Amandla Stenberg, among others — were sporting the brand). Gucci’s creative director, Alessandro Michele, was also the gala host committee chair. Additional support was provided by Audi.
