Artsy Presents Swiss Institute: Silent Benefit Auction 2018 and Live Benefit Auction 2018. Founded in 1986, Swiss Institute is an independent non-profit space for international contemporary art. Committed to the highest standards of curatorial and educational excellence, Swiss Institute serves as a platform for emerging artists, catalyzes new contexts for celebrated work, and fosters appreciation for under-recognized positions.
Swiss Institute’s Benefit Auction functions as the organization’s largest fundraising event of the year. It helps fund exhibitions, public programs, and a newly founded arts education initiative for children, teens and seniors. Most importantly, it keeps Swiss Institute open to the public, with all exhibitions, events and programs presented entirely free-of-charge.
