Tiki Dazzle and the Last Night of Folly at NeueHouse

No contributor

This week, NeueHouse hosted two separate events leading up to the start of New York Fashion Week for the artists Cyril Duval and Rachel Feinstein.

On September 2, the fashion and art world crowd gathered to celebrate the conceptual artist and designer Cyril Duval who had created a site-specific work for the space’s 25th Street façade. The party had a tropical theme and was dubbed “Tiki Dazzle,” featuring Hawaiian and pop music from Eric Lyle Lodwick.

Cyril’s design for NeueHouse extends from the first to the second floor windows and features a cheekily modernized “tiki-pop” take on “razzle dazzle”—the camouflage technique used on battleships during WWI. The graphics for the design are in dialog with Duval’s work in his upcoming show “Voir Dire,” opening September 13 at Johannes Vogt Gallery.

The following night, on September 3, Rachel Feinstein toasted to the final day of her Madison Square Park installation, “The Last Days of Folly.” Hosted by Marianne Boesky Gallery and the Madison Square Park Conservancy, Feinstein’s summer-long project (large-scale sculptural installations of three architectural follies executed in decorative styles popular in the 18th- and 19th-centuries) culminated with a one-day art and fashion event combining Folly-inspired looks from Cynthia Rowley, Zac Posen, Proenza Schouler, and Narcisco Rodriguez, with performances by contemporary musicians, artists, opera singers, dancers, and puppets.
