Join us for our third annual FIGMENT Project Global Fundraiser and Masquerade Ball!

About this Event

We are excited to invite you to our third annual FIGMENT Project Global Fundraiser and Masquerade Ball on 11/11. Celebrate FIGMENT and raise funds for our 2020 season.

11/11 for 2020. Coincidence? We think not. Our theme this year is SYNCHRONICITY: that thing we humans do when we find meaning and causality in unrelated events.

When we create art, we create meaning from circumstance. We carve out causality from randomness. We make things matter.

Join us and celebrate that meaningful coincidence; embrace that wink and nod from the universe; and clap your butterfly wings at our 2019 MIRROR / MIRROR FIGMENT Fundraiser & Masquerade Ball.

Over the past 13 years, FIGMENT has hosted 73 free interactive arts events

in 20 cities

in 5 countries

on 4 continents

and with your help we can continue to grow and expand

AWARDS

We are thrilled to announce that this year we will be awarding Risa Puno and Cliff Perlman with Interactive Art Awards.

The Interactive Artist of the Year Award: Risa Puno is a sculpture and installation artist who uses interactivity and play to understand how we relate to one another. Often taking a whimsical form, Risa's work creates accessible spaces to explore universal human conundrums. Risa has a long history with FIGMENT, including creating the "Common Picnic" Installation in the FIGMENT NYC Season-Long Sculpture Garden on Governors Island for the 2015 season. In addition, Risa has exhibited at national and international venues, including: Creative Time, The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Socrates Sculpture Park, El Museo del Barrio, NURTUREart, The Bronx Museum of the Arts, SPACES in Cleveland, OH, Galerie Stefan Röpke in Cologne, Germany, and MMX Open Art Venue in Berlin, Germany. Visit her current installation, The Privilege of Escape, at Creative Time until 9/30. 

The Interactive Arts Patron of the Year Award: As a partner at Perlman and Perlman, Cliff Perlman has has been advising philanthropic organizations for more than twenty five years, counseling the firm’s nonprofit clients through every stage of the corporate life cycle. As a board member of American Chai Trust, Cliff has funded and supported projects in the New York City area that deal directly with human needs since 1964. The trust's support extends to community and interactive art and has been a great supporter of FIGMENT since 2014.
