Prof. Lisanne Skyler commissioned by LACMA to create film for annual Art + Film Gala

In 2020, Professor Lisanne Skyler was commissioned by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) to create a 15-minute film commemorating the 10-year anniversary of the Museum’s annual Art+Film Gala. LACMA has released a shortened version of the film ahead of this year’s Gala which will take place November 6, 2021.

Co-chaired by Eva Chow and Leonardo DiCaprio, LACMA’s Art+Film Gala draws notables from the art, film, fashion, and entertainment industries. Proceeds from the signature event go toward underwriting LACMA’s initiative to make film more central to the museum’s curatorial programming, while also funding LACMA’s broader mission.

LACMA’s film program has dedicated resources to producing short documentary films on prominent artists of our time including John Baldessari, Ed Ruscha, David Hockney, Barbara Kruger, James Turrell, and Catherine Opie. They tap into a network of standout early to mid-career filmmakers to produce these features, including Prof. Skyler, who was commissioned in 2016 to make a documentary about the artist Robert Irwin, A Few Things About Robert Irwin.
