NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: Multimedia artist, sonic creator, musician — however you describe MeLo-x, he excels at the unpredictable.
Given his artistic tendencies, not to mention work with Beyoncé, the Guggenheim has lined him up to DJ at its Young Collectors party on March 31. Museum officials weren’t giving away much about what he has in store, other than some of his own work will be in the mix and he is sure to put a creative spin on his sets.
The David Yurman-sponsored event, which will benefit the Young Collectors Council, is being chaired by Sarah Arison, Laura de Gunzburg and Nell Diamond. Revelers in the rotunda will also find artists whose work is in the permanent collection including Lucas Blalock, Alice Channer, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Jennie C. Jones, Jamian Juliano-Villani, Amie Siegel, Naama Tsabar and Jonas Wood.
Host committee members include Claire Distenfeld, Fabiola Beracasa-Beckman, Maria Giulia Prezioso Maramotti and Dalia Oberlander. They will join YCC co-chairs Noreen K. Ahmad, Astrid Hill Dattilo, Alexandra Economou and Anne Huntington for a dinner in the Wright restaurant before folding into the rest of the party.
