2015's extravaganza looks set to be no exception, with Canadian singer, producer, artist and writer Grimes booked to perform and Dior presenting the occasion for the third consecutive year.  

This year's bash will honour artists On Kawara (in memoriam), Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian and Doris Salcedo, both subjects of recent career-spanning exhibitions at the museum. The huge pre-party (ie the most elaborate pre's you can possibly imagine) will take place on November 4, with the equally lavish benefit dinner the following night.
