Debauchery, Nudity, and Salad at Creative Time’s Fall Ball
Can you guess which famous artist bared it all?
What happens when you put some of the coolest people in art, fashion, and culture together at Neuehouse for a twelve-hour slumber party extravaganza? Well, things can get a little weird.
First, there was Dustin Yellin’s naked butt, which became a presence in the evening after the artist was subject to one of the party’s random “strip searches” (thankfully, he covered the front part using a large paper flower). Then, there was the impromptu game of “spin the salad,” in which the ubiquitous sleepover game Spin the Bottle was enacted using a salad spinner. This activity ended rather abruptly when a guest inexplicably began throwing spinach everywhere. Perhaps she didn’t like whoever her spin landed on?
Creative Time’s Fall Ball also featured contortionist performers, a molecular mixology lounge sponsored by Absolut Elyx, a Vanity Projects pop-up nail salon, tarot card readings, porn puzzles, karaoke, a Twister board, and a whole bunch of cots, though no one did very much sleeping.
The party’s intrepid attendees included artists Will Cotton, Rob Pruitt , Jonah Freeman, Justin Lowe, Marco Brambilla, Sebastian Errazuriz and Tom Sachs, as well as Grey Area’s Kyle DeWoody, journalist Linda Yablonsky, MoMA PS1’s Angela Goding, and Artbinder’s Alexandra Chemla.
The most surprising part of the whole thing? Somehow, despite the pervasive lack of sleep, a raging dance party ensued the very next night as part two of Creative Time’s impressive weekend-long celebration.
