The 2013 Guggenheim International Gala (GIG) has announced two evenings of celebration starting Wednesday, November 6 with a pre-party featuring electronic music ambassador/DJ Richie Hawtin (aka Plastikman). The event, which runs 9pm to midnight, is hosted by the Guggenheim’s Young Collectors Council and made possible by Dior.

Hawtin gives a special show in the Guggenheim’s rotunda at the pre-party, which also features an opening musical performance from Matthew Hawtin, a visual artist, electronic DJ, and brother of Richie. The following evening, Thursday, November 7, the benefit gala dinner honors artist James Turrell along with artist Christopher Wool, whose retrospective is on view at the museum from October 25, 2013, through January 22, 2014.

About Richie Hawtin

Hawtin’s seminal role in shaping Detroit’s electronic dance scene established his international status as a legend in the field. He is the master behind acclaimed techno imprints Plus8 and Minus, and is also known for his persona Plastikman; as Plastikman, he took the 1990s techno world by storm with a series of minimalist albums that attracted interest from leading festivals around the world. His performances bring together futuristic sounds and visionary visuals, and his work with technology has put him at the forefront of contemporary electronic music. The French government’s Department of Culture commissioned Hawtin to create a sound environment as part of the French Millennium 2000 celebrations. Titled La Beauté, the project also featured contributions from Jeff Koons, Jean-Luc Godard, La Monte Young, and Anish Kapoor. In 2011 Kapoor invited Hawtin to activate his sculpture Leviathan with a performance at Paris’s Grand Palais for the annual public art festival Monumenta.

About the GIG

Funds raised from these events will benefit of the operation of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and will help the museum support its many innovative educational, curatorial, and research programs and the exhibition of its unparalleled collections of modern and contemporary works of art.

Wine and spirits for the Guggenheim International Gala are provided by Moët Hennessy USA.
