Pari Dust at New Museum Halloween 2014 by Xavier Aaronson

Last Friday, the New Museum hosted an early evening Halloween party. They invited its members and handpicked je ne sais qui from NYC’s art, film and fashion circles. 

That day, I guzzled the Halloween Kool-Aid and got swept down a river of costume frenzy upon which I was swimming madly as a party-thirsty shark.

There’s something eerie and bemusing about creeping through a museum as overgrown children donning masks and temporary face paint bumble around the galleries.

There was a medusa, two Frida Kahlhos,  double unicorn action, a six-foot tall weed leaf, and a too-lifelike-for-comfort Bret Michaels. Far from dastardly, the ghoulish festivities were filled with well-mannered chatter and excited curiosity over each others’ elaborate and sometimes obscure costumes, all while surrounded by large-scale paintings by Chris Ofili and an installation by Lili Reynaud-Dewar.

I wouldn’t call it a rager but it was the snackiest of warm-up parties with the right kind of early evening punch to the sternum before heading into a long night leading into an early grave.
