Antwaun Sargent: All The Coolest Looks From The Most Stylish Gallery Opening Of 2021
The huge line that formed around the block in the west side of Chelsea on Thursday night was not for a concert, a streetwear show or even a fashion show. It was for the opening of social works, the first show hosted by new director Gagosian (and GQ contributor) Antwaun Sargent, who joined the mega-gallery in January of this year. Featuring works by Theaster Gates, with 5,000 records from the personal collection of House music legend Frankie Knuckles; a huge limestone sculpture by David Adjaye; and a working farm of Linda Goode Bryant, the show is about “art as a social act,” Sargent told the New York Times.
As thrilling as the art on display was the crowd, which brought people viewing to a new level. (It was more like a personal vision.) Sargent’s universe has always embodied a particularly New York-style symbiosis between art and culture. Show attendees did not disappoint and reminded us that New York is in a new golden age of exuberant and expressive personal style. These are some of the best looks of the night.
