DIOR AND THE GUGGENHEIM PARTY ON: For the second year, Dior is sponsoring the Guggenheim International Gala, a two-night event to take place Nov. 5 and 6 in New York. The annual benefit honors artists Carrie Mae Weems, whose retrospective was on view at the museum last spring; Heinz Mack, Otto Piene and Günther Uecker of the German artist group Zero, whose work will be featured in “Zero: Countdown to Tomorrow, 1950s-60s” from Oct. 10 to Jan. 7, and Beijing-based contemporary artist Wang Jianwei with the exhibition “Wang Jianwei: Time Temple” on view Oct. 31 to Feb. 16.
The GIG kicks off with a pre-party Nov. 5 featuring a performance by The xx, the trio from South London who performed at New York’s Park Avenue Armory in March.
