The New Museum takes its name very seriously. The New York Next Generation Party, a fundraiser for the 2015 Triennial, was held on Friday in anticipation of an event... two years from now. It was hosted by Lisa Phillips, Toby Devan Lewis and co-curators Ryan Trecartin and Lauren Cornell, plus a committee almost as full as the guest list. V spotted the art crowd essentials mingling with top-tier partiers, members of Dis Magazine and SHanzhai Biennial participating in their installations commissioned for the event, and performers (DJ) Teengirl Fantasy, (singer) Lauren Devine and (pop duo) 2 Pretty. Check out Dis's photos of their "Red Carpet Services," served with a beverage specially made by Shanzhai Biennial, consisting of the museum's drinking water and yellow dye.
