PRIZED PRADA: Independent Curators International (ICI) will honor Miuccia Prada and Prada Foundation director Germano Celant respectively with the Leo award and the Agnes Gund Curatorial award at its annual benefit. The pair will be feted for their contributions to contemporary art, the work of the Prada Foundation internationally and for the exhibition "When Attitudes Become Form: Bern 1969/Venice 2013." On view at the Ca' Corner, the show has been singled out for its focus on the history of exhibitions and independent curating.

Prada, who serves as president of the foundation that bears her name, follows in the footsteps of such other Leo recipients as John Russell, Roy and Dorothy Lichtenstein and Chuck Close. Established in 1990, the Leo award is named after the art dealer Leo Castelli and it is given to those who have helped further a forward-thinking generation of artists and curators.
