Creative Time honoring Craig Robbins
Thursday April 28: 6 pm Cocktails 8 pm Dinner
MAST CHOCOLATE’S FUTURE FACTORY, BUILDING 28, BROOKLYN NAVY YARD
Once a year, Creative Time throws a show-stopping gala the New York Observer calls, “One of the art world’s top ten, break the mold spring fundraisers.” Your support of the Spring Gala helps to ensure millions of people have free opportunities to engage with the most trailblazing art of our times. This year, we are thrilled to honor Craig Robins, the visionary behind Miami Design District and Design Miami, and celebrate the inimitable artist Rirkrit Tiravanija, in a fantastical Brooklyn Navy Yard location.
Like Creative Time, Craig Robins ignites the public’s imagination, exploring ideas that shape society and engaging people around the globe. For more than three decades Robins has championed creative communities and fore-fronted public art through his professional life and philanthropy. He has proven himself to be an ever-inspiring cultural leader with an ambition to make the world a better place.
Rirkrit Tiravanija is an artist that embodies the ethos of Creative Time. Tiravanija creates socially-engaged art works that blur boundaries and bring people together, often using human interaction as his primary material. From the 2006 Whitney Biennial to the 50th Venice Biennale to the Museum of Modern Art and the Serpentine Gallery, Tiravanija is lauded the world over.
The 2016 Creative Time Gala is not to be missed. We promise you a night to remember!
