For this week’s Friday FêteWhitewall takes you through some of this week’s events, including celebrations with the New Museum, Parley for the Oceans, Montblanc, and more.

On Tuesday, the New Museum held its annual Fall party to celebrate its new exhibitions, spotlighting “Sarah Lucas: Au Naturel”—the British artist’s first U.S. retrospective, showing more than 150 works in sculpture, photography, and installation. Over cocktails and conversation, guests also explored other solo shows on view by artists Marianna Simnett, Marguerite Humeau, Chris E. Vargas, Dan Herschlein, and Aslı Çavuşoğlu.

Also that night at 54 MacDougal Street, over cocktails and canapés, Savoir Beds celebrated its recent designer collaboration with Nicole Fuller—the STELLA bed. Named after and inspired by artist Frank Stella, the bed’s shape, color, and composition calls upon work that Stella created, and focuses on abstract geometric patterns.

On Wednesday, the New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) hosted its annual Rose Garden Dinner in the Bronx. This year, the institution honored Marjorie G. Rosen for her long-standing leadership and support of the Botanical Garden, highlighting 22 years on the Horticulture Committee and more. Starting with cocktails, then dinner, and ending with dancing in the Garden Terrace, the event raised $675,000 to benefit NYBG’s Fund for Horticulture and the

Also on Wednesday, Parley for the Oceans hosted a panel discussion at Pace Gallery entitled “Art for a Healthy Planet.” Moderated by Cyrill Gutsch, the talk explored topics on ocean welfare, climate change, biodiversity loss, and ecological crisis with leaders like artist John Gerrard, Studio Swine’s Alex Groves, and scientist Dr. Sarah Jeane-Royer.

Last night, Montblanc hosted an event at the World of McIntosh Townhouse to welcome its special edition (MONTBLANC M)RED collection. There, Allison Williams and Rami Malek joined other guests to welcome the new collection, wherein proceeds benefitting (RED) and the organization’s fight against HIV/AIDS.

Also last night, citizenM opened its newest hotel on Bowery Street in New York—designed by longtime partner, Amsterdam-based firm Concrete. Walking in, we were greeted by a Martian-like welcome team of women in silver tinsel wigs and matching garb, and glasses of Veuve Clicquot champagne. In the expansive double-height lobby, a signature for the hotel, guests mingled over canapes and cocktails before touring the new space. Now the tallest building in the neighborhood at 246 feet, the new space also includes an expansive cloudM rooftop bar and outdoor terrace, offering stunning views of the city.
