2019 contemporaries bash
The Phillips Collection and the Embassy of Mexico invite you to the 2019 Contemporaries Bash: Maravillas de México (Wonders of Mexico).
Inspired by Mexico’s vibrancy and bold spirit, the 2019 Contemporaries Bash brings together the wonderful art and culture of Mexico, stunning in its unique diversity, in one sensational night of creative cocktails, fantastic food, magnetizing music, and dazzling dancing.
This year we will also pay homage to the extraordinary Mexican women who, with a deep connection to their remarkable culture, history, and tradition, are innovative and daring in their artistic endeavors. What a cause for celebration here and beyond!
Come connect with The Phillips Collection’s dynamic community of art-lovers, creative thinkers, and philanthropists.
