RAD. AWESOME. TOTALLY TUBULAR.
Monday night’s opening of the Steven Sebring Illumination exhibit at Milk Gallery was a surreal mash-up of New York’s fashion, art and culture crowd. Seriously. Where else would you find Reed Krakoff, Richard Chai, Catherine Malandrino, Victoria Bartlett, Irina Lazareanu and Nanette Lepore rubbing elbows with Lucas Haas, Roxanne Lowit, Donna D’Cruz, Sky Ferreira and Mickey Rourke?
Nowhere. Because this is where you’d find Sebring’s reworked, larger-than-life Polaroid portraits of poet/musicians Jim Carroll, Neil Young, Joey Ramone, Richard Hell, Phillip Glass, Patti Smith and Michael Stipe, with the latter two taking to the stage to perform a live, heartfelt tribute to all the artists featured. Trust us. You haven’t lived until you’ve seen Patti Smith rock out to the Ramones’ Blitzkrieg Bop and duet with Stipe on REM’s Everybody Hurts.
You can read all about it in our blog post over on Rue La La. In the meantime, enjoy these snaps, which we took just before it got crazy crowded.
