Last night, infamous Instagram "appropriator" Richard Prince joined Fendi to host Free Arts NYC's 17th Annual Art Auction and soirée honoring Glenn O'Brien. Artists, A-listers, and girls-about-town crowded into the event on Chambers, at a space regal enough to reflect the guest of honor, a huge purveyor of the arts and king of New York cool. Paddle8’s Alexander Gilkes served as auctioneer during the live auction, posing pieces for partygoers including Jemima Kirke, André Saraiva, Hilary Rhoda, Tali Lennox, and Marilyn Minter. With art aplenty and the Perrier-Jouët flowing, it was a masterpiece of a night indeed.
Who was there: Guests included Alexander Gilkes, Andre Saraiva, Cleo Wade, Andi Potamkin, Glenn O'Brien, Jackie Swerz, Jemima Kirke, Kate Bolduan, Richard Prince, Tony Shafrazi, Damien Florbert Cuypers, Liz Hopfan, Olivier Zahm, Rashid Johnson, Adam Cohen, Anne Huntington, Arden Wohl, Chelsea Leyland, Dan Colen, Jordan Blackmore, Laura de Gunzburg, Marilyn Minter, Michelle Hellman Cohen, and Annabelle Dexter-Jones.
