Remembering Armory Focus: The Nordic Countries party at The Ace Hotel NY

Armory Focus: The Nordic Countries party at the Ace Hotel NY in partnership with the Scandinavian consulates...now that was a party. Too bad I spent most of the night near tears at the door barely managing an angry crowd but it was worth it. Artist Ragnar Kjartansson, or DJ Raggi on Ice rather, was playing tunes and holding court with his friends the likes of which included Bjork, while fashion collective moonspoon gave an unforgettable catwalk performance.

Looking forward to this year's party co-hosted by Eric Shiner, Curator of Armory Focus: USA and Director of The Warhol, celebrating the Focus section participating galleries and featuring none other than Cody of the musical phenomenon SSION (pronounced "shun" by the way). And this year lesson learned, stay away from the door, and closer to the bar.
