Hundreds of guests gathered on the terrace at 1 Hotel last night for a dinner celebrating art, collectors and great food hosted by Sotheby's CEO Tad Smith, Richard LeFrak and Barry Sternlich. The air was tropical and the mood was festive as the crowd feasted on tacos, plantains, suckling pig, sushi and oysters by the dozen. More revelers joined in the after party, held in a dramatic warehouse space, where guests posed for selfies that were incorporated into FaceValue, an immersive projection piece by hyperhyper and flockofsiegelproductions. The hypnotic djs QT and DOSS warmed up the crowd for a surprise performance by electronic musician Sophie.
