Robert Longo Launches Benefit Exhibition for Guild Hall

No contributor

Artist Robert Longo has spearheaded a benefit exhibition in support of Guild Hall in Long Island’s East End, launched in response to the financial effects of COVID-19 on the multidisciplinary arts space. Open through December 31, “All for the Hall” brings together more than 60 artists in support of the venue.

After Longo’s solo exhibition was canceled due to the pandemic—along with the space’s summer gala and auction—the artist initiated the group show as a means of raising critical funds. Curated by Museum Director and Chief Curator Christina Mossaides Strassfield, the works on view have been donated by artists like Shirin Neshat, Enoc Perez, Rashid Johnson, Ugo Rondinone, Kiki Smith, Robert Wilson, and Cindy Sherman. Each piece in “All for the Hall” is available for purchase and with all proceeds going to Guild Hall.

“Artists have always been and always will be our greatest resource and inspiration,” said Andrea Grover, Guild Hall’s Executive Director. “It is a demonstration of the power of the arts to ignite civic participation and the power of collective artistic action.”

Exhibition highlights include pieces like Longo’s ink and charcoal depiction of a swan’s wing Study of Angel Wing, a suite of new paintings by Rondinone, Alexis Rockman’s new watercolor series highlighting the impact of world migration, the dynamic UV cured ink creation Zoe by Yung Jake, and a black-and-white portrait from Neshat’s “Roja” series. Other participating artists include Ross Bleckner, Jules de Balincourt, David Salle, Bryan Hunt, Eric Fischl, Alice Aycock, and Jeremy Dennis.
