Tate Americas Foundation Hosts Benefit Dinner And After Party In New York

No contributor

Ever wanted to know what happens when an artist DJs a gala? Ask Jim Lambie, who last Wednesday manned the decks at the Dior sponsored Tate Americas Foundation benefit, prompting the likes of Marilyn Minter, Linda Yablonsky, Jeremy Kost, and benefit host Christen Wilson, to bounce around to ‘80s new wave and Italo-disco.

Staged at Skylight, the evening honoured more than thirty artists from the Americas whose works are represented in the Tate’s permanent collection, culminating in a Studio 54-inspired after-party outfitted with jaunty neon lights in the spirit of Dan Flavin.

The dancing only ensued after a dazzling dinner and an even more animated auction. Simon de Pury commandeered the paddle as eager bidders snatched up a sail through the Greek Islands on Dakis and Lietta Joannou’s private yacht, and a shopping trip to Dior with Sarah Jessica Parker. The style maven herself was in attendance, as was newly platinum Anne Hathaway who spent the evening gabbing away with Alexa Chung and Derek Blasberg.

Celebrities weren’t the only elite rubbing shoulders with one another; artists Alex Katz, Marina Abramovic and Los Carpinteros were all spotted giggling and hopping into a photobooth that digitally projected images onto the venue wall.

In the end, the benefit raised a sizable sum of $2 million, proving that Americans and philanthropy go together just as well as the Tate and England.
