Red Bull Arts New York’s inaugural event allowed attendees to make a mad dash for goods spread out throughout the 3-story space. The ‘Purge’-ish event is part of the space’s The Casual Pleasure of Disappointment exhibition, which features apparel and accessories from Swedish artist Bjarne Melgaard scattered about the psychedelic department store and free on a first come, first serve basis. ‘The Purge’ is the first of a multi-night event leading up to the opening of the space as a jewelry store tomorrow to the public.
The Casual Pleasure of Disappointment is also in collaboration with Creative Director Babak Radboy, Stylist Avena Gallagher, Producer Kate Hawkins, Art Director Erin Knutson, and Architects Charlap Hyman and Herrero.
In the following slides, check out wild imagery from the exhibitions V-day night extravaganza.
