One is pleased to announce its first-ever benefit gala held on the occasion of its 10th Anniversary.
The gala will take place on Thursday, March 5, 2009 at 7pm at 26 Greene Street. On the night of the
gala, internationally-renowned artist and 2008 Location One Senior Artist-in-Residence Laurie Anderson will stage
a special performance.
Fostered by the experimental art scene of downtown New York in the early 1970s, Anderson created
her earliest performances in SoHo, where Location One is based today. She has gone on to include a
variety of media from music, video, digital art, and sculpture, in addition to continuing her
acclaimed performance work. Following the gala, Location One will present an exhibition entitled
From the Air: Two Installations and will be open to the public from March 10
through April 25, 2009.
Location One's 10th Anniversary Benefit Gala will be limited to 125 guests, creating an intimate,
private atmosphere in which to see the performance and share cocktails and dinner with artists and
Location One patrons. The gala will take place as the art world convenes in New York for the Armory
Proceeds from the gala will fund Location One's International Residency Program, which supports
established and emerging artists in exploring new forms of artistic expression. The gala will also
support Location One's public programs, which include exhibitions of artwork created by artists in
residence, as well as music, performances, and lectures.
Location One's 10th Anniversary benefit gala committee is chaired by Sophie Crichton-Stuart,
James Lindon, Alina Pedroso, and Eric C. Shiner. Location One extends special thanks to Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte,
