LAND Sakes: An Arts Benefit Not to be Missed


In a city where pop culture dominates, it’s crucially important to support the creative arts. That’s why LAND—the Los Angeles Nomadic Division—is so worthwhile. Created by a former curator at the Whitney Museum of American art and a curator at the Los Angeles County Museum of Modern Art, LAND is poised to curate site- and situation-specific contemporary art projects.

Planned as an annual event, LAND’s first benefit will take place this July 14th and 15th, each night sure to be a uniquely unforgettable experience. On Wednesday the 14th, LAND patron Eugenio Lopez—one of the world’s top 100 contemporary art collectors—will open his house for an intimate cocktail reception and dinner hosted by co-chairs John Baldessari, Lori DeWolfe, James Franco, Liz Goldwyn, Salma Hayek Pinault and Francois-Henri Pinault.

Sound like a “haute” ticket? Consider a 10-person table package: For $10,000, the Adventurer’s table also includes tickets for all to the following night; For $15,000, the Explorer’s table also includes VIP tickets for all to the following night and two limited edition ceramic works by Artemio (one of his works pictured above); For $25,000, the Conqueror’s table also includes VIP tickets for all to the following night and one limited edition portfolio by José León Cerrillo (his work, below).

On Thursday the 15th, a larger cocktail party will be held at the Sunset Tower hotel. The Gift Horse Project, a collective of nearly two dozen musicians and songwriters including Rain Phoenix, will create distinct performances for each night. The Moor will also perform on the 15th.

New works by several LAND artists will also be displayed and available for purchase each night.
