Honorees for the 2019 LACMA Art+Film Gala on Nov. 2 have been set: African-American artist Betye Saar and “Roma” filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón.
LACMA trustee Eva Chow and actor Leonardo DiCaprio will continue as co-chairs, and Gucci will continue as presenting sponsor for the event, which last year drew stars including Jared Leto, Kim Kardashian, Dakota Johnson, A$ AP Rocky, Beck, Kiki Layne and Paris Jackson.
Known for her assemblage works, Saar has been a political voice in art since 1972, when she entered a small box containing an “Aunt Jemima” mammy figure wielding a gun, into an open call for black artists at a community center in Berkeley not far from the Black Panther headquarters. Titled “The Liberation of Aunt Jemima,” the piece repositioned a derogatory figure born of America’s racist history as an armed revolutionary, and set a course for Saar’s career exploring the symbolism of everyday objects in the context of African-American oppression.
“Betye Saar is one of the most significant artists working today, and one who boldly addresses issues of race, gender and spirituality,” said LACMA chief executive officer and Wallis Annenberg director Michael Govan in a statement.
“Born in Los Angeles and having sustained a career over seven decades here, Saar

Fashion Group International’s 2018 Honorees for the Night of Stars

Superstar — Vera Wang
Vera Wang’s name is nearly synonymous with all things bridal, but her body of work is much more than that.
And this year’s Superstar award winner has experienced different sides of the industry that others may have only observed secondhand. Her Sarah Lawrence years included a semester abroad at the Sorbonne in Paris and culminated with a degree in art history. That appreciation for art is evident in her collections and her homes. An accomplished figure skater, Wang hung up her skates professionally to take her first job at Vogue magazine, where she remained for 15 years before joining Ralph Lauren as design director for accessories.
A few years later, as she was nearing 40, her father “really pushed the agenda,” encouraging her to start her own company, a decision that she wasn’t gunning to do at that time, Wang has said. “I remember the day I signed my lease for my Madison Avenue store, I had such a feeling of dread and fear of failure. My father was downright fanatical about this. He was a businessman. He said, ‘Bridal’s a good business. There will always be brides, and it’s something you can control. You’ll be working just a

His ability to collapse time and space, history and
