With futuristic designs by artist and musician Farah Al Qasimi, the 2023 YCC (Young Collectors Council) Party will transform the iconic rotunda into an artificial digital paradise. The dark yet beautiful universe will draw inspiration from classic science-fiction films like Blade Runner and The Fifth Element to build a world teeming with utopic digital imagery.
The one-night-only dance party features DJ sets, an open bar, and super-sensory digital display, as well as a celebration of the inaugural LG Guggenheim Award. Future floral attire is encouraged.
Funds raised from the evening will benefit the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the Young Collectors Council Art Fund, which supports emerging and established contemporary artists, and directly impacts the museum’s permanent collection, groundbreaking exhibitions, and education initiatives. The YCC Party is presented by LG Display. The YCC 2023 artist collaboration with Farah Al Qasimi is supported by LG OLED.
