On Thursday October 2, LADA presented ALAG: A Live Art Gala, its first-ever fundraising event, which took place at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern in London. A full evening of performances in front of a sold-out room was memorably MC-ed by David Hoyle: details of the performance line-up.
Our expectations of what a Live Art auction could be were completely surpassed with the support of ALAG’s auctioneer Joshua Sofaer; all the objects and experiences in the Silent Auction were bid for; and the Live Art Tombola was completely sold-out.
The funds raised at ALAG will be used to support LADA’s programmes, making influential artists’ development programmes like DIY possible, supporting new publications by extraordinary artists, and helping us buy essential books and DVDs for our Study Room.
ALAG was timed to celebrate LADA’s 15th Anniversary, and we are very grateful to the artists who donated their performances and auction items, and everyone who bought ALAG tickets, bid for auction items or dived into our ALAG Tombola. We hope everyone at ALAG enjoyed the experience.
‘Go see your solicitor and make LADA the benefactor of your will.‘ – David Hoyle
