ICI 2017 Benefit & Auction
Wednesday, October 25
Cocktails at 6:30pm
Dinner at 7:30pm
New York City

Join ICI’s Annual Benefit & Auction on Wednesday, October 25, 2017 as we reaffirm our commitment to curatorial practice and contemporary art. Join our Co-Chairs Sarah Arison, Agnes Gund, Vik Muniz, and our Honorary Co-chairs Ann & Mel Schaffer and Sydie Lansing as we raise a glass to the future of the organization, and in support of ICI’s new programs and partnerships. On the occasion, ICI will honor Patricia Phelps de Cisneros with the Leo Award, acknowledging her vision—international in scope, supportive of artists and curators, and focused on education—which in so many ways echoes ICI’s core values. ICI will also present the Agnes Gund Curatorial Award, given every other year to honor a curator who has made an outstanding contribution to the presentation and discourse of contemporary art.
