Press Release

Art Production Fund celebrated its 10th annual gala, honoring Sarah Hoover and Tom Sachs on Monday, March 9th, 2020. Co-chairs including CHANEL, Aby and Samantha Rosen, Allison Sarofim, Gagosian, Emily Ratajkowski & Sebastian Bear-McClard, Nancy Magoon, Jenna Lyons, Mary Frey and Mario Sorrenti, Shelly Fox-Aarons and Philp Aarons, Sanford Biggers, and Sarah Arison. As one of New York’s most anticipated art world events, this year’s gala took place throughout the iconic NYC landmark, THE POOL. Guests wearing their best Black Tie Hole enjoyed champagne and spirits by Ruinart and hors d’oeuvres in THE GRILL, with a performance by Mika Tajima featuring ballerina Alexandra Jacob. The mezzanine level of THE GRILL was transformed into an immersive installation where guests were able to receive manicures with Tom Sachs-designed nail decals and products by Chanel Beauté. Guests also had the unique opportunity to receive a Tom Sachs ID and custom ID holder at the Tom Sachs Space Program Indoctrination & Re-Education Center.

A ball pit featuring the APF logo drawn by Tom Sachs welcomed guests into THE POOL, along with Music by The Misshapes. Guests sat down to a decadent dinner curated by Sarah, featuring caviar by Regalis Foods and napkins by Ed Ruscha. Gabriela Palmieri led the live auction including works by Ed Ruscha, Sanford Biggers, and more, with support from Crozier.
