Last night, the New Museum celebrated their 35th anniversary spring gala at Cipriani Wall Street. The honored guest of the night was Paul McCarthy, who read a prose-poem speech. The red carpet back-drop was a Swarovski crystal curtain and Chloe Sevigny wore a white tux, with a coordinating edition of Moby Dick as her main accessory.
