BULLETT & The New Museum Celebrate the Next Generation

+

On a misty Friday night, The New Museum combined the two things it does best—supporting and showcasing artists on the cusp, and throwing parties. Sponsors like Hendrick’s, Peligroso Tequila, The Standard, and, well, us, helped co-curators Ryan Trecartin and Lauren Cornell raise support for their 2015 Generational Triennial with what was fittingly dubbed The Next Generation Party. It was that kind of event that wherever you turned, a tray dotted with champagne flutes awaited (that is to say, good). DiS magazine provided their twisted brand of red carpet pomp: male and female humans in terrifying white bodysuits, all covered in logos, tongue-to-cheek. Upstairs in their Sky Room—which, with its wraparound balcony and white-on-white Clockwork Orange vibe, remains one of the best places to throw a party in New York—things took a a turn for the packed and sweaty. Teengirl Fantasy brought the noise, and Mykki Blanco, Klaus Biesenbach, Andrea Rosen, Terry Richardson, Lucy Chadwick, and Jeanette Hayes also came out to support Trecartin and Cornell. We can’t wait until the next one.
