Robert Irwin will be honoured at the The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) Art+Film Gala this year. The ceremony takes place on October 26 and brings together notables from the art, fashion, film and entertainment industries.
LACMA has collected the work of Robert Irwin since the early 1960s and has consistently displayed the artist's seminal works at the museum since then.
Michael Govan, LACMA CEO said, "Bob is one of the most significant artists of our time. He creates art not of objects but of perception."
The event will be co-chaired by LACMA trustee Eva Chow and actor Leonardo DiCaprio and is now in it's sixth year.
