34 artists to see at the 2021 Tom of Finland Art & Culture Festival

24th November 2021, 4:44 pm


Tom of Finland Foundation is presenting the 26th Tom of Finland Art & Culture Festival — Tom of Finland 101: Raw Anatomy. ToFF Vice President & Curator S.R. Sharp said of this year’s event: “Tom of Finland would have been one hundred and one this year, so 2021’s educational theme is Tom of Finland 1-0-1. For this particular ‘course,’ RAW Anatomy, the artists are our instructors.”

The Festival is ToFF’s yearly programmatic effort to bring together artists and patrons from all over the globe in a social environment, so that they can network as well as buy and sell works. Second Home is an indoor/outdoor space that offers a large garden campus, where art installations, performances, and presentations will occur in select “pods” and courtyards framed by lush landscape.

This year’s event will bring together erotic artists, vendors, performers, DJs, and galleries. ToFF will also present its annual awards for Lifetime Achievement to Lloyd L. Clayton, Artist Hall of Fame to Martín Sorrondeguy, and an Achievement Award to Suzanne Shifflett. Exhibitors include David Kordansky Gallery, Edward Cella Art, Simon Haas, Rick Castro, and Rubén Esparza Projects.

In addition to the in-person Festival, ToFF has created an Online Viewing Room on their website, which will launch simultaneously with the Festival, on 4th December. “We wanted to offer the opportunity for global artists to participate and showcase their work,” says curator Gary Everett. The Online Viewing Room will feature a special UK section, curated by Everett and Stuart Sandford.

Phenakite, the Los Angeles Times 2021 Restaurant of the Year, boasting a recent Michelin Star and a 20,000 person waiting list, is proudly hosting a fundraising dinner at Second Home for Tom of Finland Foundation on Friday, 3rd December.
