Americas Foundation of the Serpentine Galleries
Launched in 2014, the Americas Foundation of the Serpentine Galleries brings together dedicated supporters of contemporary art from North and South America to serve as ambassadors for the Serpentine Galleries in London. The Americas Foundation is an independent 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization based in New York City.
Led by CEO Bettina Korek, Artistic Director Hans Ulrich Obrist, and Chairman Michael R. Bloomberg, the Serpentine Galleries has presented pioneering exhibitions for half a century—showcasing the work of emerging practitioners as well as the most internationally recognized artists of our time. The Serpentine innovates at the intersections of Art and Ecology, Art and Civic Engagement, and Art and Technology. Supporters of the Americas Foundation gain shared insight into each of these areas of knowledge.
The Americas Foundation of the Serpentine Galleries is an essential component of the Serpentine's global network of support. Members commit a minimum of $10,000 per year—and are encouraged to join at the $25,000 level—contributing to the Serpentine's efforts to champion new ideas in contemporary art and amplify the voice of American artists worldwide. The Americas Foundation also contributes to the Serpentine's interdisciplinary initiatives, special exhibitions, and education programs.
