Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
There were a lot of fantastic shows in New York in January and February. First, this winter marked the launch of two highly anticipated new gallery spaces in Chelsea, David Zwirner and Hauser & Wirth, injecting the art world with a lot of excitement and energy. Further afield, I finally made it to see the beautiful new Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, New York, designed by my favorite contemporary architects, Herzog & de Meuron. I was not disappointed. It was wonderful to see the Hamptons community using the museum, which was teeming with families. It seems to be serving its purpose well, injecting vitality and culture into the Eastern end of Long Island. Last but not least – as I love to find art in unexpected places – I was struck by the Allen Ruppersberg billboard entitled “You & Me” overlooking the High Line in Chelsea, which happened to be up during Valentine’s Day.
