2015, 2016, 2017 & 2018

Natasha Schlesinger has curated charity auctions for the Baryshnikov Arts Center benefit in New York over the last four years, from 2015 to 2018.

The most recent Fall Fete is set to take place on Monday, October 1, 2018, at the Baryshnikov Arts Center. The event begins with a reception, and continues with a program in the Jerome Robbins Theater: Bach Studies (Part 1) choreographed by Benjamin Millepied, performed by L.A. Dance Project; and excerpts from the film NY Export: Opus Jazz (2010), featuring choreography by Jerome Robbins danced by members of New York City Ballet. Dinner and a silent art auction, curated by Natasha Schlesinger and Vajra Kingsley, follow in the Howard Gilman Performance Space. The art auction will also be available on Paddle 8.

Last year’s auction took place on October 2, 2017, at the Baryshnikov Arts Center, as well as on Paddle8. The benefit auction brings together various emerging and established artists whose works reflect the multi-faceted diversity and colorful approach of the organization.
