UTA Fine Arts Event - H 2015

UTA's top execs turned out along with L.A.'s art elite.

Wednesday delivered a fine night for a UTA party.

The agency toasted its recently launched Fine Arts division with an evening cocktail bash that drew UTA's top brass, including CEO Jeremy Zimmer, chairman Jim Berkus and agent Josh Roth, the latter of whom heads the division.

As for the location of the party? It was held at the Beverly Hills home of Steve Roth, who happens to be the father of Josh Roth. (The elder Roth was a co-founder of CAA so you can imagine the party conversation.)

Industry gossip aside, the party served another purpose: bolstering UTA's new division (opened in February) that focuses on the representation of painters, sculptors, photographers and mixed media artists, all under Josh Roth's umbrella. The agent joined the Civic Center headquarters following six years as Chair of the Art Law Department at Glaser Weil.

Steve Tisch, Maurice Marciano, Jeff Berg, Peter Morton, China Chow, Lawrence Bender, Minnie Driver, Bill Viola, Anthony PearsonMark Hagen, Alex Israel, Rem Koolhaas, the Haas brothers, Kulapat Yantrasast and Mungo Thomson were among the attendees.
