INCOGNITO, 2009, Installation view

INCOGNITO, the Santa Monica Museum of Art’s highly anticipated annual art exhibition and benefit sale, returned for its fifth year on Saturday, May 2, 2009. The element of surprise that underlies INCOGNITO reflects the essence of discovery that inspires SMMoA’s exhibitions, education, and outreach programs. All proceeds directly support the museum, which in 2008 celebrated two decades of creative accomplishment. The annual benefit has raised nearly $1.25 million in its five-year history.

Attendees–from sophisticated art supporters to first-time collectors, artists, and art enthusiasts–are encouraged to trust their instincts to guide their selections, as works are signed on the back and artist identities are revealed only after purchase.

In 2009, nearly 700 art enthusiasts mingled among the 650 works from 500 artists–the year saw an unprecedented level of participation from iconic and emerging artists from Los Angeles and worldwide. In honor of INCOGNITO’s fifth anniversary, John Baldessari designed an extraordinary logo that represents the spirit of this groundbreaking event.
