All for the Hall: A Benefit Exhibition
Conceived by Robert Longo
The original plan was to have Robert Longo's solo exhibition debut at Guild Hall in time for its annual summer gala. When the ongoing COVID-19 crisis forced the East Hampton cultural center to cancel the event, however, Longo postponed his show and subsequently compiled artworks donated by 60 artists—the likes of Cindy Sherman, Laurie Anderson, Eric Fischl, and Wade Guyton representing only a fraction of the famous names among them—to help organize a benefit exhibition in its place.
Now on view at Guild Hall, the appropriately-titled "All for the Hall" will stay up through the end of 2020. That said, with pieces available to buy on its digital platform—given how few remain despite still being more than a week out from Labor Day—the exhibition seems on track to sell out far sooner.
