Margot with Jim Shaw at New Museum Xavier Aaronson

 

She very slowly ricocheted from wall to wall, soaking in each painting, unconcerned with the cluttered surrounding of weekend art seekers. Margot is a graduate of NYU’s Gallatin School and recently started a job at The Cultivist. She not only came for Jim Shaw’s survey exhibition at the New Museum but also got a docent tour by none other than the artist himself. Impossible to relinquish the impulse to take her photo, we loved Margot’s casual elegance. However, what drew us in even more was her combat boots and flannel skirt combo. It tapped into our soft side for 90s tv nostalgia, giving us flash backs to My So-Called Life’s teenage heroine and grunge maven Angela Chase.  (photo by Xavier Aaronson)

Here’s your one-week-late-not-sure-who-gives-a-shit-at-this-point recap of  the New Museum‘s tightly-themed party in celebration of their latest exhibit “NYC 1993: Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star.“
