Tom of Finland Foundation presents first live Art & Culture Festival in two years

22nd November 2021, 4:48 pm


Tom of Finland Foundation (ToFF) is presenting the 26th Tom of Finland Art & Culture Festival — Tom of Finland 101: RAW Anatomy on 4th & 5th December.

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 is the first year the Festival is at Second Home and the first in-person festival ToFF has hosted in two years. Durk Dehner, ToFF’s President & Cofounder, noted that this year is even bigger than the last one:

“With the highest attendance to date, the 2020 Festival was hosted on a custom website with streaming panels, performances, and exclusive events. We are thrilled to expand further this year with COVID-conscious experiences available for attendees.”

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 and Architecture, Simon Haas, Rick Castro, and Rubén Esparza Projects.

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.
