Creative Time 2016

On April 28th, New York City’s outstanding public-arts organization Creative Time welcomed 700 artists, arts enthusiasts and supporters to its annual spring gala in a repurposed warehouse of the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The evening honored Design Miami/ cofounder Craig Robins and celebrated the work of his artistic collaborator Rirkrit Tiravanija, whose socially conscious and often-interactive installations are representative of the nonprofit's mission.

1stdibs is proud to support and collaborate with Creative Time, as they advocate for and develop new platforms for artistic expression. For the gala, a collection of all-white furnishings from 1stdibs dealers, hand-picked by Robins and displayed on a series of pedestals adorned in the style of Tiravanija, welcomed partygoers to the event. The monochromatic palette was inspired by the city of Miami and reinforced the evening’s theme of a fresh start, or more aptly, a blank canvas.

“I think Creative Time is one of the most profound arts organizations in the country,” says 1stdibs dealer and Creative Time board member Cristina Grajales. “The vision that they have of bringing art that is thought provoking, that is socially conscious, that is poetic, but is also about the community is so important.” Her contribution to the event installation, a humorous chicken lamp by Sebastian Errazuriz, also plays at the organization’s latest epically scaled art project: Duke Riley’s Fly By Night, officially opening in early May. (Guests to Thursday’s event will have a chance to visit the pigeons that will be its stars in the Navy Yard.)

The spring gala brought together creators and patrons, but as Creative Time executive director Katie Hollander acknowledges, it also united two important groups, design lovers and arts enthusiasts. "Our partnership with 1stdibs presents a dynamic opportunity to engage new creative audiences,” say Hollander. “1stdibs understands that engaging in authentic dialogues within the arts empowers artists, and connecting artists, curators and designers with the public makes magic happen.”

1stdibs is pleased to offer a special collection of pieces
selected in collaboration with Creative Time.
