Contemporary Calgary's LOOK2014 Art and Fundraiser Gala
Presented by Holt Renfrew
Contemporary Calgary is an organization that was formed in January 2014 through the merger of the Art Gallery of Calgary, the Museum of Contemporary Art Calgary and the Institute of Modern and Contemporary Art. Its mission is to develop Calgary into a global city of choice by connecting the city with the arts of our times. The current vision is to redesign the iconic Centennial Planetarium into the destination for modern and contemporary arts.
For the first time on November 1st, the Contemporary Calgary will be hosting a one-of-a-kind fundraising art gala: LOOK2014, which is said to bring people the unparallel experience. Presented by Holt Renfrew, and supported by Enbridge and the Calgary Herald, LOOK2014 will be an extraordinary evening of art-auction, live entertainment, live-art installations, superior DJ sounds, and mouth-watering delicacy by Hotel Arts’ Chef Duncan Ly, all happening in a posh underground space.
“We are delighted to invite the world to see the future of contemporary art in Calgary and to offer the opportunity to be a part of it from the beginning.” Said Erin O’Connor, Interim Manager of Contemporary Calgary. “Our plans are to create a major museum of modern and contemporary art, and LOOK2014 on November 1st is the place we’ll start. People will feel the excitement of what is possible.”
Premium ticket is $250 and VIP is $500. VIP ticket holders will have the chance to rub shoulders with best-selling author and one of the world’s most influential thought leaders Richard Florida, hosted by Dave Kelly.
In addition to live and silent art-auctions, draws will be held throughout the night for covetous door prizes including a $10,000 Holt Renfrew shopping spree. All of the funds raised in the evening goes to support the Contemporary Calgary, elevating this city’s global presence of art and culture.
