“We don’t sell NFTs, and we won’t,” said Bettina Huang, co-founder of Platform, an online marketplace for contemporary art that celebrated its first anniversary on Wednesday at the Bowery Hotel. The website, also co-founded by David Zwirner’s two children, Marlene and Lucas Zwirner, showcases artists from smaller galleries.
It was a sticky night, and the guests, who moved leisurely among the open bars and cushioned benches that rimmed the terrace, wore light, open dresses, barely-there tops and more than a few T-shirts.
Philip Colbert, who produced a film about Salvador Dalí, wore a black T-shirt he printed with the words “Fake Dali.” “I made all these imaginary Dalís for the movie because we didn’t have the rights,” he said. “I think they could be sold at auction as second-rate Dalís.”
On July 9, the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, N.Y., held a midsummer gala that honored, among others, Racquel Chevremont and Mickalene Thomas. The arty Hamptons crowd wore lots of international labels, including Chanel, Pucci, Gucci and Louis Vuitton.
The Most Dressed features great outfits from up, down and all around town.
