For this week’s Friday Fête, Whitewall takes you through some of this week’s events, including celebrations with The Hole gallery and Ermenegildo Zegna.
On Tuesday night at The Hole in New York, UTA Artist Space and Vans previewed “Meet Me In the Bathroom: The Art Show.” There, guests took a first look at the group show—inspired by author Lizzy Goodman’s book Meet Me In The Bathroom, which explores the revival of rock-and-roll revival in NYC in the 2000s. Over 450 musicians, artists, actors, photographers, DJs, and art world patrons joined, including exhibition co-curators Goodman and Hala Matar, and Regina Spektor, Brian Chase and Nick Zinner (from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Luke Jenner, (from The Rapture), Brittany Snow, and Tali Lennox. The festive night concluded with a DJ set by Mark Ronson, who spun classics until late.
And last night on the Upper East Side, Ermenegildo Zegna celebrated its latest brand campaign “What Makes A Man.” The house’s Artistic Director Alessandro Sartori, with two-time Oscar winner Mahershala Ali, the face of the campaign, welcomed guests to an intimate evening of cocktails. Guests like Victor Cruz, Irina ShaykBenjamin Millepied, Jessica Joffe, Alexi Lubomirski, Fabien Baron, John Dempsey, Michael Avedon, Dori Cooperman, and Chef Mario Carbone joined in on the celebration. VIP attendees then made their way in to the study, partaking in a conversation about masculinity in today’s times. To follow, an unforgettable Italian dinner was prepared by Carbone, paired with specialty cocktails and Ferrari Spumante champagne.
