The annual Creative Time Gala will honor Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, founders of Opening Ceremony at City Point, Brooklyn. The evening will serve as the debut of Pledges of Allegiance, a new collaboration between Creative Time, Opening Ceremony, along with Alix Browne, Cian Browne, and Fabienne Stephan. Through the project, artists are invited to create a flag that speaks to an issue they are passionate about, or a cause worth fighting for. The flags will then be flown across NYC and potentially beyond. Participating artists for the launch of the project include Trevor Paglen, Tania Bruguera, Jeremy Deller, Alex Da Corte, Rirkrit Tiravanija and Yoko Ono, amongst others.
The gala is Creative Time’s single most important fundraiser of the year, that helps to ensure Creative Time is able to continue presenting free and open to the public art projects.
