2018 Guggenheim Young Collectors Party

| April 12, 2018 | Parties

On Thursday April 12, 2018, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum hosted its annual Young Collectors Party. The 2018 Guggenheim Young Collectors Party celebrates recent acquisitions for the museum’s permanent collection through the YCC Art Fund. Since 1996 members of the YCC have enjoyed insider access to leading contemporary artists through curator-led studio visits, tours, and events that bring together young professionals with a passion for the arts. The 2018 Young Collectors Party is supported in part by The Kooples.

The evening begins with a seated dinner in The Wright for YCC and event Cochairs,
host committee members, and artists whose work is represented in the Guggenheim
collection through acquisitions of the YCC Art Fund. After dinner, guests celebrate in
the museum’s iconic rotunda with drinks, dessert, and dancing. Funds raised from the
evening benefit the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the YCC Art Fund, which
has supported the acquisition of more than 140 works by emerging and established
contemporary artists over the last 20 years.

Naama Tsabar, whose 2015 sculpture Work on Felt (Variation 4) was acquired by the
Guggenheim in 2016, curates an evening of feminist musical interventions in the iconic
Frank Lloyd Wright–designed rotunda. Featured artists include Buke and Gase, Fielded, PRIMA, and a DJ set by BEARCAT. The 2018 Young Collectors Party performances are supported by Adam & Alexa Wolman.
