American Idols

| November 29, 2011 | Parties

THE PARTY Prism gallery hosted the debut of two solo exhibitions by Daniel Askill and David LaChapelle. THE PLAYERS Mary-Kate Olsen, Jamie Mazur, Alessandra Ambrosio, Shenae Grimes, Justin Chatwin, Lydia Hearst THE SCENE Art aficionados packed the gallery to view Askill’s multimedia Three Rituals exhibit and LaChapelle’s juxtaposition of his “Negative Currency” and “Recollections in America” works—his commentary on our fiscal state and exaggerated American iconography. BEST IN SHOW Askill’s dancing Michael Jackson juxtaposed with an airplane shattering through glass invoked serious rooftop chatter about two of the key cultural moments in American history in the last decade—the death of the King of Pop and the tragedies of 9/11.
