On November 15th, the annual Guggenheim International Gala celebrated the Edmond de Rothschild Foundation and philanthropists Dimitris Daskalopoulos and Alice Walton with a grand dinner at the museum’s landmark Frank Lloyd Wright–designed building. 

The feast featured a menu by Gunnar Gíslason, Executive Head Chef of Agern, as well as a special performance of the oldest song in the world, the Hurrian Hymn,” arranged by Nico Muhly and commissioned by Works & Process at the Guggenheim. Notable guests included Gwyneth Paltrow, Karlie Kloss, pre-gig performer Jorja Smith, Maria Grazia Chiuri from Dior, Nan Goldin, and many more.
