It was an innovative way to celebrate a new real estate campaign, which I attended last night. The experience included design, celebrity party, and the most expensive lot ever sold in Chelsea: a Getty gas station on 10th Avenue and 24th Street. Here, real estate developers Michael Shvo and Victor Homes plan to construct high-end apartment tower, but before construction begins, they set to create open-space gallery on the site. The first one, an installation, “Sheep Station,” created by art dealer Paul Kasmin in the form of a meadow with more than a dozen bronze-and-concrete sheep created by late French artist Francois-Xavier Lalanne (whose work is represented in NY by Kasmin). The sculptures (not for sale) are from the private collections of Kasmin and Shvo.
