Guggenheim Hosts 2019 Young Collectors Party

| April 16, 2019 | Parties

On April 11, 2019, guests and VIPs gathered for a night of art and glamour at Guggenheim Museum for its 2019 Young Collectors Party. The 2019 Guggenheim Young Collectors Party, featuring “ballet kink” performative interventions in the museum’s iconic Frank Lloyd Wright–designed rotunda. Choreographed by artist Brendan Fernandes, the performances draw from classical ballet and modern dance, with a nod to fetish clubs and the Japanese bondage art of shibari. Guests also enjoyed the exhibition Implicit Tensions: Mapplethorpe Now, honoring the groundbreaking work and sustained legacy of artist Robert Mapplethorpe (1946–1989). Funds raised by the 2019 Young Collectors Party will 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.
