CREATIVE TIME GALA HONORING CRAIG ROBINS
CELEBRATING RIRKRIT TIRAVANIJA
WITH A TOAST TO ANNE PASTERNAK
The 2016 Creative Time Gala was a marvelous display of love for art from a stunning crowd. Thanks to all everyone who came out to support and made it a night to remember!
Your support of the Spring Gala helped to ensure millions of people have free opportunities to engage with the most trailblazing art of our times. For 2016, we were 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.
