Kemper Gala 2021: ARTBEAT

October 9, 2021 @ 7:00 PM - 12:00 AM CDT

We are so excited to welcome you back to an in-person Kemper Gala this October. This year’s event, ARTBEAT, is inspired by two exhibitions that will be on view during the event: Rafael Lozano-Hemmer: Pulse Topology, a new immersive light and sound environment featuring 3,000 light bulbs that pulse to the heartbeats of visitors and Aliza Nisenbaum: Aquí Se Puede (Here You Can), comprised of three large-scale portraits of individuals connected to the salsa dance and music communities in Kansas City with whom the artist has been working, remotely, since 2020.

This is a PARTY! There are no speeches or auctions—just incredible haute cuisine, dynamic entertainment, surprises at every turn, and lots of dancing. In addition, your patronage allows you to play an important role in ensuring access to world-class exhibitions of contemporary art and programming for all ages and abilities—always completely free of charge.

Helen and Frank Wewers, Honorary Chairs
Emily Uhlmann Fehsenfeld, Co-Chair
Damian Lair, Co-Chair
