Sexy Beast 2016 built on the fabulous success of the 2014 Gala, raising nearly $500,000 for Planned Parenthood Los Angeles through an epic auction of over 40 artworks. The evening was hosted by Andy Richter, featuring entertainment from performance art trio, WIFE, and honored the efforts of documentarian Dawn Porter whose film Trapped won the 2016 Sundance Social Impact Award. 

Donated lots for the event included works by Marilyn Minter, Sterling Ruby, Ed Ruscha, Robert Mapplethorpe, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Larry Bell, Barbara Kruger, Nina Chanel-Abney, and Claire Tabouret, among others.
