Takashi Murakami

Friday Fête: ArtTable, Moët & Chandon, Takashi Murakami at Perrotin, and More

Before Frieze Week kicks off next week, we’ve indulged in an array of events to get us in the swing of celebration. Below is our highlight of top soirées from the past week.

On Tuesday in New York, Santa Teresa, Venezuela’s oldest rum company, gave us a taste of spirits and exquisite Venezuelan cuisine by Chef Carlos Garcia at Cosme. Special guests were treated to cocktails created with Santa Teresa 1796, and cuisine celebrating CEO Alberto Vollmer’s Venezuelan roots. The night also celebrated the soon-to-open restaurant Obra Kitchen Table in Miami, and Santa Teresa’s ongoing notable community outreach program Project Alcatraz.

On Wednesday at Metrograph Theater, we celebrated the Tribeca Film Festival with Moët & Chandon for their 3rd annual Moët Moment Film Festival (MMFF) celebration. The annual competition, committed to inspiring new filmmakers, welcomed 60-second films based on the theme “A Case for Celebration.” Judged by actress Billie Lourd, Angelita Mendoza’s You Deserve It and Aubrey Smyth’s The Bout tied for first place. Second place went to Hye Na’s Off Season, and third place went to Jimmie Lee Ward’s Family.

On Thursday, we were off to celebrate ArtTable’s 25th annual benefit. With nearly 400 artists and art world patrons in attendance, the night was hosted by ArtTable Executive Director Ada V. Ciniglio and Board President Whitney Rutter. The benefit honored renowned gallerist Marian Goodman with an award for her service to the visual arts world, presented by artist Julie Mehretu.

And this weekend, we’ll be attending an “Insta Meet” with Takashi Murakami on Saturday to celebrate his first exhibition at Perrotin in New York entitled “Heads↔Heads.” This exhibition, spanning three floors, marks the artist’s 14th show with the gallery in over 23 years, but the first at the gallery’s New York location. Presenting a new series of paintings inspired by the work of Francis Bacon, Murakami highlights his extensive studies in Nihonga painting with an array of striking works.
