New York is crazy busy with art events lately. Just this past weekend, our art director Crystal Gwyn went to an Armory show about art and fashion, and then paid a visit to Beat Nite, Bushwick's late-night gallery party in conjunction with the Armory Arts Weekend. Meanwhile, photographer Sam Polcer went to MoMA, where the avant-garde quartet CHERYL hosted an "interactive dance party" in conjunction with the museum's temporary Cindy Sherman exhibit. They took lots of photos of everything.

Fashion influences art, art influences fashion at The Armory this past weekend.

This past Saturday, participating in Amory Arts Week, Bushwick galleries stay open late, and English Kills hosts an absinthe filled-afterparty.

CHERYL, the joyously avante-garde foursome of cat-mask-wearing, fake-blood-spewing, glitter-eating party monsters with the infectious, whacked-out video invites became the MoMA cleaning crew's worst nightmare on Saturday night. Their event, part of the museum's PopRally collaborative series, was an "interactive dance party" in conjunction with the museum's temporary Cindy Sherman exhibit; accordingly, there was no shortage of face paint, fake hair, mannequins, costumes—and perhaps more spilled-beer mayhem than MoMA's directors probably anticipated. (Rumor has it Sherman was in attendance. The artist/chameleon might even be... in this slideshow. We'll never know!)
