Overheard in the Art World

We’re in Soho on Tuesdays, the Lower East Side on Wednesdays, Chelsea on Thursdays. We go to openings, art fairs, auctions, performances, lectures, galas, member events, after-parties. (Oh the afterparties!) WE are the New York Art World, though we do travel, so we’re really everywhere.

Every Friday, we post things in “Overheard in the Art World.” #OHAW Honestly, art world, don’t take yourself so seriously.

Here is our first — and short — inaugural post with a few things we overheard this week:

“Is that girl wearing vagina earrings? I only know what a vagina looks like because of Georgia O’Keeffe.”
@ MoMA PS1/Creative Time launch of MTV’s “Art Breaks”

Person #1: “Is Jeff Koons gay?”
Person #2: “God, I hope not.”
@ Brooklyn Museum’s 2012 Artist Ball Afterparty

“My ex-boyfriend, the comedian, called me yesterday to say he met Kehinde Wiley and ask me if I knew of his work. I said, his paintings are worth a lot more than your jokes, sweetie.”
@ Brooklyn Museum’s 2012 Artist Ball Afterparty

“God, what I want to do to this panel.”
Naughty architect @ Storefront opening of Archizines
