Michael Shvo invited over 700 guests to the Raleigh Hotel on Monday night for a preview of the largest public outdoor showing of works by Claude Lalanne and François-Xavier Lalanne to date. Residing in the hotel’s The Raleigh Gardens, the preview of “Les Lalanne” saw attendees like Peter Marino, Nicole Miller, Flavin Judd, Sydney Picasso, Angela Missoni, Pepe Mar, Petra Levin, Todd Bishop, Chloe Berkowitz, Lee Mindel, and Jane Holzer enjoying cocktails by mixologist Albert Trummer and Chef Daniel Boulud’s barbeque bites amidst the Lalanne’s exhibition of sculptures. Conceived by Shvo with the help of Marino, Holzer, and gallerists Paul Kasmin, Jean-Gabriel Mitterand, and Ben Brown, “Les Lalanne” features over 40 works by the duo and marks the completion of the new gardens, which were the finishing touch in the revival of the iconic hotel.
