Artists in Motion: ADAA Art Show Gala Preview

| April 28, 2011 | Parties

The Party: Art enthusiasts glided through the Armory munching canap├ęs and taking a sneak peek at the show’s Matisses, Courbets—and even a de Kooning priced at upwards of $6 million. David Zwirner parted with portrait artist Alice Neel’s “Nancy” (1980) for $850,000, and the fair raked in $1.1 million for the Henry Street Settlement. The Players: Mary Alice Stephenson and Jamie Tisch prowled the corridors, and designer Phillip Lim got acquainted with the finely detailed ash paintings of Chinese artist Zhang Huan at Pace Gallery. There was no shortage of opportunities for serious schmoozing—with heavyweights such as collectors Aby Rosen and Alberto Mugrabi, and Whitney Museum Director Adam Weinberg, clustered in the same room. Overheard: “This fair is fun because it doesn’t have a massive shopping-mall atmosphere.” –Tonya Bonakdar, gallery owner.
