Tuesday was a competitive event night in Gotham. MoMA, Guggenheim, and Museum of Moving Image all held respective parties but massive, Sandy delayed Whitney Museum of American Art Gala and Studio Party held its own. The two-part event raised $2.7 million in part thanks to Microsoft. Guests included after-party chair Michael Avedon, Andres Serrano, George Condo, KAWS and Julia Chiang, Adam Green, and Glenn Ligon. Nate Lowman was a very special DJ and the man wasn’t kidding around - he brought a box of vinyls.

Yayoi Kusama, Accumulation, (1963) at Whitney Museum of American Art
Yayoi Kusama. Her Whitney show is getting us mighty excited.
We found this at the Whitney Biennial.
This might be the most telling work from this year’s Whitney Biennial.
