Event Details

Join us for the annual Contemporary Vision Award as we celebrate the groundbreaking accomplishments of media artist Christian Marclay. This honor salutes creative minds across the globe who redefine contemporary visual culture and make the art of our time a vital and meaningful part of public life. Organized by the Modern Art Council — SFMOMA’s premier fundraising art interest group — this event supports the museum’s education and exhibition programs, which serve more than 60,000 students, teachers, and families each year.

Christian Marclay crosses the borders between genres and practices, combining and remixing aspects of visual art, music, and performance. Spanning three decades, Marclay’s oeuvre shows a deep and lasting influence of his DJ practice in its playful and surprising sampling, collaging, scratching, and composition. He has collaborated with musicians such as John Zorn, Zeena Parkins, and Sonic Youth among many others. His installations and video/film collages have been included in exhibitions across the world including the Whitney Museum of American Art New York, Venice Biennale, Centre Pompidou Paris, Kunsthaus Zurich, and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. In 2013, Marclay's internationally heralded film The Clock counted down SFMOMA's final hours before we went On the Go during our expansion. 

Guests will enjoy:

  • An invitation to the 2016 Contemporary Vision Award Launch Party at Fraenkel Gallery on Tuesday, October 4
  • An exquisite seated dinner in SFMOMA’s Helen and Charles Schwab Hall featuring a conversation with honoree Christian Marclay and Rudolf Frieling, SFMOMA curator of media arts
  • Complimentary valet parking

Vision Award Society and Grand Benefactor guests are also invited to attend a predinner cocktail celebration with Christian Marclay. In addition, Vision Award Society guests are invited to an intimate art experience with Marclay before the predinner cocktail festivities.

Seating capacity is limited; reserve a ticket today.
