Over 40 artists honored at gala attended by 385 guests to support Foundation’s acquisition of art from the Americas for the Tate

May 4, 2016, New York—On Tuesday, May 3, art world luminaries from South America to London gathered at the IAC building in New York City for the Tate Americas Foundation’s fourth triennial Artists Dinner. Sponsored by Oscar de la Renta, LLC and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars NA, the evening honored more than 40 artists from the Americas whose works are represented in the Tate’s permanent collection.
The evening, which included a live auction led by Oliver Barker and an after party with a DJ set by Rachel Chandler, celebrated the opening of the expanded and re-hung Tate Modern in June, and resulted in a total of $1.5 million raised for the Tate Americas Foundation. Funds raised from the Artists Dinner will be used to procure North and South American art for Tate, allowing the Foundation to continue its strong legacy of expanding and diversifying the Tate’s collection through the acquisition of works by artists of the Americas.
The Artists Dinner was attended by 385 guests, including event co-chairs Estrellita Brodsky (New York),Kira Flanzraich (Miami), Pamela Joyner (San Francisco), Komal Shah (San Francisco), Robert Sobey(Stellarton, Canada), Christen Wilson (Dallas), and Juan Yarur Torres (Santiago, Chile).
David Stark Design transformed the IAC building with décor inspired by the sharp geometry and twisting, pyramid-like shape of Herzog & de Meuron’s new building for Tate Modern. Dinner guests were greeted by a cocktail hour of fine Chilean wines from Viña Morandé before sitting down to a dinner by Canard, Inc, featuring a blanched vegetable velouté with garden purées, eggplant caviar, and mustard cream and an entrée of fennel pollen coated Arctic char, followed by a variety of petite sweets, coffee, and tea.
A live auction led by Oliver Barker, Chairman, Sotheby’s Europe, featured items generously donated by supporters of the Tate and raised over $100,000. Packages included: A Weekend for Two in Napa, featuring a three-night stay at the Kramlich Residence and Collection, a welcome dinner hosted by Pamela and Richard Kramlich, private tour of the Collection, and visits to private collections and vineyards; The Best of Great Britain, including a tour of Tate Modern with Director Frances Morris, tea with artist Paul Smith at his studio, lunch at The Wolseley, four stall seats and dinner at Glyndebourne’s 2017 season, and a chauffeur-driver Rolls-Royce for the day; and Behind the Scenes with Oscar de la Renta, featuring a tour of the Oscar de la Renta Atelier with Creative Director Peter Copping, a $5,000 gift certificate to the Madison Avenue boutique, and two tickets to the Oscar de la Renta Fall 2017 Runway Show in February 2017.
The evening honored artists from North and South America, including honorees in attendance:  Lynda Benglis, Walead Beshty, Carol Bove, Andrea Bowers, Mark Bradford, Cecily Brown, George Condo, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Alexandre da Cunha, Moyra Davey, Leonardo Drew, Mitch Epstein, Ellen Gallagher, Theaster Gates, Sam Gilliam, Nan Goldin, Beatriz González, Paul Graham, Rodney Graham, Guerrilla Girls (Frida Kahlo and Kathe Kollwitz), Tamar Guimarães, Neil Jenney, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, Jac Leirner, Glenn Ligon, Christian Marclay, Helen and Brice Marden, Teresa Margolles, Kerry James Marshall, Josiah McElheny, Julie Mehretu, Bruce Nauman and Susan Rothenberg, Gabriel Orozco, Laura Owens, Miguel Angel Rojas, Mark Ruwedel, Joan Semmel, Stephen Shore, Amie Siegel, Lorna Simpson, Melanie Smith, Michael Snow, Valeska Soares, Frances Stark, Carrie Mae Weems, James Welling, Judi Werthein, Jack Whitten, and David Zink Yi.

ABOUT TATE AMERICAS FOUNDATION: Tate Americas Foundation is an independent charity based in New York that raises support for Tate from individuals, foundations, and corporations in the Americas. The charity was founded in 1987, when Sir Edwin and Lady Manton created the American Fund for the Tate Gallery, a restricted endowment to acquire works of art from North and South America for presentation to Tate. The organization, previously known as American Patrons of Tate, was renamed the Tate Americas Foundation in early 2013 to reflect the organization’s evolving role and expanding geographical base of support. Since 1999, the charity has raised over $210 million in cash donations and acquired $76 million in art (through purchase or gift).  For more information, please visit
