Promised Land

| November 21, 2012 | Parties

The SceneThere was a lot of nudity at the Goss-Michael Foundation, and no, there were no socialite wardrobe malfunctions—that we know of. British artist Linder Sterling, that’s just Linder to you, was in town to celebrate her show, Daughters of the Promised Land. The pieces, on view until Jan. 31, are primarily large-scale, hand-spliced and re-photographed images exploring the way in which the media portrays the female body—all part of the private collection of George Michael and Kenny Goss. The Crowd Among the lightbox-encased bare bods, we spotted Stuart Glass, Aphrodite Gonou, Lady Halina von Kempski-Behrendt, Amy Phelan, Jeremy and Wendy Strick, Christen and Derek Wilson and others enjoying another lively evening hosted by Goss-Michael. The show Cocktails in hand, guests chatted with the artist herself as they admired pieces such as “The Masks of God’’ and “Art as Experience,” duratrans on lightbox works featuring busty models with strategically placed roses, or “Tormentil,” a piece with a prominently featured meringue hiding a lusty model’s…business. We suggest a closer look, ASAP. Photography by Bruno
