The evening will feature a reception, followed by conversation on stage. The artists will speak about their work, process, histories, and lives in this historic public event moderated by author and critic Hunter Drohojowska-Philp.
“This LA Legends conversation stands at the beginning of a dynamic new partnership between The Broad Stage and Sotheby’s Institute of Art – Los Angeles,” said Jonathan T. D. Neil, head of global business development for Sotheby’s Institute and director of the institute’s Los Angeles programs. “The Broad Stage is an elite performing arts organization with diverse, adventurous programing, and we couldn’t be happier to be working with its leadership on a new slate of programs for the public and our students.”
Over the next two years, The Broad Stage and Sotheby’s Institute of Art – Los Angeles will continue the series of Artists Talk conversations and will launch a new series of public programs – panels, conversations, talks dedicated to the business of performance.
Over the same period, students in the art business and arts management programs at CGU will enjoy privileged access to the Broad Stage senior staff as part of a performance management intensive. The Broad Stage will also serve as a client organization for the arts management program’s consulting practicum capstone.
“Performance isn’t the first thing people think of when they hear the name Sotheby’s,” Neil said. “But our arts management program, the only one of its kind in Southern California, appeals to students with strong backgrounds in dance, music and theater, and the arts and cultural fields in Los Angeles in particular are finding new energy in cross-disciplinary and cross-sector initiatives. That’s where our graduates can take the lead, and the Broad Stage is the perfect partner to help them do that.”
Tickets to the LA Legends conversation can be purchased online at The Broad Stage website or by calling 310-434-3200.
The event will be streaming on Sotheby's Institute of Art's Facebook Page–live from The Broad Stage in Santa Monica.
In 2013, Sotheby's Institute of Art established an historic partnership with Claremont Graduate University to offer a graduate Art Business degree in partnership with The Masatoshi Ito and Peter F. Drucker School of Management. In 2015 Sotheby’s Institute took over direction of CGU’s Arts Management program, an ongoing partnership with the School of Arts and Humanities, and expanded that programs offerings to include concentrations in Arts Media and Art Museum Management, the latter offered in partnership the Getty Leadership Institute.
Students in both programs are offered a rigorous education in the creation, management, and leadership of a wide range of arts organizations and initiatives while also enjoying unparalleled access to L.A.’s excellent cultural institutions and arts professionals.
