Since kicking off last Thursday, Fashion Week has been non-stop, and between the runways to the dinners to the after-parties, New Yorkers have been buzzing from dawn till dusk. Before Fashion Night Out kicked off the season, Proenza Schouler's Madison Avenue store opening and Brian Atwood's new ad campaign launch and the celebration of his first NYC flagship gave us a preview of the parties to come. But as the week went on, the parties got bigger, better, and more exclusive. From the much-anticipated launch of Carine Roitfeld's CR Fashion Book, to Lady Gaga closing the week with an art piece performance at the Guggenheim, here are the top ten parties of New York's S/S 2013 Fashion Week!
There's some fantastic performances on this week's art scene, including a bodacious display at Leslie-Lohman Museum and a trio of sonic-visual acts at Kinematic Thursdays. Also, don't miss the book-signing with Ryan McGinley, the Guggenheim retrospective of Rineke Dijkstra, and the conclusion of Uptown Arts Stroll, Northern Manhattan’s annual arts festival. So if you can't go to the beach this weekend, make waves at one of these hot art events! More»

The current retrospective of this French-American nonagenarian at the Guggenheim, which has already been exhibited in London and Paris finally comes to New York, a city that Bourgeois has considered home for nearly the last seventy years. Bourgeois is the epitome of feminist art, a vocal leader in the empowerment movement for females (long before it was popular, as she often claims).
It is almost hypocritical that she favors materials which tend to evoke femininity in the conventional sense, from delicate glass jars and bottles to diaphanous fabrics and tactile yarn and string. Yet, Bourgeois finds art and beauty in the combination of that which confines the woman to home.

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
