At the Mutewatch launch, the two mimes, David and David, were totally into their Mutewatches. It was love at first tap. And they were super eager to share their love.
When they weren’t helping out the bartender, that is.
Or dancing with the Vice Counsel from the Swedish Consulate.
Yes, little design mites, it’s time once again for the annual fall exhibition opening night at Moss. Here’s a preview of the we’re-only-interested-in-the-new-work crowd that usually shows up. They’re not really there for the wine or for the chance to hook up. No, siree. They’ll be coming for The Great Plains, as the show is called. Short hand for lots of tables (large flat surfaces) in plain colors. Plus many other treats. Like, well, the wine.
Once again, Moss has staged an intervention and stopped the world from dying of boredom. Yes, possums, the opening night of Fraternal Twins has once again proven the enduring power of plain old good design, attractive young people and free alcohol. Who could have predicted? They came, they swilled, they left, smiling and secure in their newfound discoveries. The rain held off, and next door Flos was offering live tattoos, and my god, what more could one want from ICFF week? If you weren’t there, if you stayed uptown at the MoMA party, if you thought the crowds would be too much for your tender sensibilities, then admit now you made a big mistake. Here was where you needed to be.
