On Wednesday night, June 1st, guests gathered at the Guggenheim Museum for the Young Collectors Council party after a 2 year hiatus. Transcendent design from artists Jacobly Satterwhite and Tourmaline, two artists thinking beyond the tangible aspects of space, created a super-sensory nightclub atmosphere.
The one-night only collaboration welcomed hundreds of guests from across the globe. The night began with a VIP seated dinner for council and committee members, event co-chairs, and artists represented in the Guggenheim collection.
The YCC Party, presented by LG electronics, started at 9 p.m. Live performances at the LG OLED lounge featured Perfume Genius, a DJ set by TT Britt, and MC Maya Margarita.
To kick off the party, Naomi Beckwith, Deputy Director and Jennifer and David Stockman Chief Curator, and Seol Park, Head of Brand Management of LG Corp., announced the LG Guggenheim Art and Technology Initiative, a five-year, multifaceted collaboration to research, honor and promote artists working at the intersection of art and technology. Unique in its areas of concentration and approach, the initiative is an unprecedented investment in technology as an artistic medium and will allow the Guggenheim to broaden its investigations into this innovative field.
Throughout the evening, guests enjoyed DJ sets, an open bar, live music and explored the LG OLED lounge, where attendees such as YCC Co-Chair Tiffany Zabludowicz, Charlotte Bickley, Sophia Coen, Emira D’Spain, Di Mondo, Libbie Mugrabi, Lauren Prakke, Susan Shin, Andrew Warren, and Emanuelle Zaoui, met LG USA CEO Thomas Yoon and learned about the history of the Guggenheim Museum through an enhanced viewing experience on LG OLED TVs. Its unique technology is a bridge that connects lifestyle with art, empowering artists to create a new generation of art.
All funds made from the evening will benefit Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the Young Collectors Council Art Fund. The goal is to support educational initiatives, emerging artists, and established contemporary artists.
