432 Park Avenue towers over Manhattan.

The day after the Met Ball, the worlds of art, fashion, design and retail will collide on a much smaller scale.

Douglas Elliman on Tuesday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. will present the latest installment of Elliman Talks, the art/design conversation series that explores the convergence of creative pursuits and real estate at 432 Park Avenue.

Design Miami’s executive director, Rodman Primack, will host architect Rafael Viñoly and Salon 94’s Jeanne Greenberg for a discussion on how art collectors have changed their preferences and buying habits in the last 20 years and how designers are incorporating the display of art in their work.

The event celebrates the Frieze Arts Fair, which begins on Thursday and continues through Sunday at Randall’s Island.

Vinoly designed 432 Park Avenue, which is between 56th and 57th Streets. The 1,396-foot, 96-story tower is the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere. Closing on the luxury apartments began in January.

The building boasts about 60,000 square feet of retail space on the 57th Street side. There’s also a freestanding retail building on the corner of Park Avenue and 56th Street. Macklowe Properties acquired the retail space along with an unnamed foreign equity investor. No retail leases have been signed yet.

The discussion will be held at the 12th-floor private dining room of 432 Park Avenue. Confirmed guests as of Monday included Yvonne Force Villareal, Alice Tisch, Jamie Tisch, Thelma Golden, Amalia and Adam Lindemann, Oscar Englebert and Giovanna Battaglia.
