History

Thanks to the phenomenal support of the dealer and artist community, TWO x TWO for AIDS and Art’s annual benefit gala dinner and art auction has raised over $67 million in its 18-year history in support of amfAR’s AIDS research initiatives and the DMA’s contemporary art acquisition program. The 2016 event raised $7.5 million.

TWO x TWO is such a successful event because it provides an opportunity to support two very worthy organizations. amfAR, the Foundation for AIDS Research, has made great strides in essential AIDS research initiatives over the last 25 years, and TWO x TWO has become amfAR’s largest fundraiser in the United States. The Dallas Museum of Art has added over 250 major works of contemporary art to their permanent collection with TWO x TWO proceeds donated to their Contemporary Art Acquisition Fund and exhibitions. TWO x TWO is also the DMA’s largest annual fundraiser.
