Party Pictures: Independent Curators International Annual Benefit & Auction
Society types and art lovers recently gathered at Center548 for Independent Curators International (ICI)’s Annual Benefit & Auction. This year, which featured the styling of designers Jung Lee and Josh Brooks of FÊTE and music stylings from DJ musician and fashion muse, Alix Brown, the event honored Miuccia Prada and Germano Celant. The magical affair included specialty cocktails featuring flavors from Tito’s Vodka and Starr African Rum with additional drinks featuring Voss, Abita and Chateau Ste. Michelle. Naturally the affair also featured a delightful selection of light bites. In this evening guests noshed on hand shucked oysters by Oysters XO.
While the evening was as you would imagine stellar, the real purpose of the evening was for charity. And the guests in attendance including Sofia Coppola, Marina Abramović, CHRISTO, Dasha Zhukova, Agnes Gund, Peter Brant & Stephanie Seymour and Stacey Engman, raised over $600,000. The money will support global expansion of ICI’s exhibitions, public programs, educational initiatives, and international networks of curatorial exchange.
Here are some pictures from the evening:
