Watermill Gala 2017 in New-York

The interdisciplinary laboratory for the arts Byrd Hoffman Water Mill Foundation is thrilled to announce the 24th Annual Watermill Center Summer Benefit & Auction “Fly into the sun”. For the first time, the benefit will be presented by Van Cleef & Arpels and will honor the musician Laurie Anderson and the actress Isabelle Huppert in tribute to Lou Reed’s exceptional life and work.


This initiative unites the worlds of art, performance, music, theatre, design, architecture and fashion into an immersive experience. All event proceeds will support The Watermill Center’s Year-Round Residency and Education Programs.


Van Cleef & Arpels’ partnership follows a collaboration with Robert Wilson in the design of the exhibition L’Arche de Noé racontée par Van Cleef & Arpels that travelled to Paris, Hong Kong, and soon, to New York in October 2017.
