All the talents that arrived during cocktail hour to celebrate.
Entertainment 07 Apr 2019

New York City’s art lovers descended upon lower Manhattan this week for the New Museum’s 2019 Spring Gala, which kicked off at Cipriani’s on Wall Street.
This year’s event was to honor the Dutch architect, Rem Koolhaas. John Waters was in attendance sporting one of the most unique suits to go with his pencil-thin moustache, while the artist Cindy Sherman showed up all smiles.The model Emily Ratajkowski popped by right before dinner, while Talking Heads musician David Byrne turned heads. As the only man in the room wearing a cap, the record-breaking artist KAWS did not disappoint, neither did actress-turned-painter Leelee Sobieski and her wonderful silk dress. There’s more.
Here’s all the talents that arrived during cocktail hour to celebrate New York City’s foremost contemporary art museum.

It was hosted by Lisa Phillips, Toby Devan Lewis Director of the New Museum; Massimiliano Gioni, the Artistic Director and James Keith Brown, President.
Why were they honoring Koolhaas, you ask? The architect is preparing a major exhibition, entitled “Countryside: Future of the World,” to open at the Guggenheim Museum in New York in 2020. But he’s also designing the New Museum’s new extension, more info to come.
