LACMA ANNOUNCES 2012 ART FILM GALA HONORING ED RUSCHA and Stanley Kubrick, with special tribute by Steven Spielberg

The 2nd annual event will be co-chaired by Leonardo DiCaprio and Eva Chow - presented by Gucci

On Saturday, October 27, notables from the art, film, fashion, and entertainment industries will unite at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) to honor artist Ed Ruscha and filmmaker Stanley Kubrick, with director Steven Spielberg paying tribute to the late filmmaker. In October, both Kubrick and Ruscha will have dedicated exhibitions on view at the museum.

Gucci again shows its invaluable support of the museum as the presenting sponsor of the 2012 Art Film Gala with Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini taking on the new role of Gala Host Committee Chair.

Ed Ruscha: Standard presents a selection of work by the quintessential Los Angeles-based artist that spans six decades. The exhibition features nearly one hundred pieces by Ruscha drawn largely from LACMA's permanent holdings, which include more than three hundred works by the artist.
Ruscha’s art depicts everyday iconography–gas stations, street signs, billboards, commercial packaging–yet often triggers philosophical reflection about the relationship between words, objects, and ideas.
