On 20 May, at Sotheby’s New York, musician A$AP Rocky staged Lab Rat, an original performance work alluding to the challenges of completing his next album. The singer, producer and style influencer endured multiple “tests,” such as submerging his head in a tank of ice water, all while enclosed in a clear Plexiglas tank – all live-streamed on YouTube. Among the friends who participated in Lab Rat were A$AP Ferg, Dev Hynes, and A$AP Twelvyy. Rocky was wardrobed by Calvin Klein, which also invited two students from Brooklyn’s Red Hook Labs Youth Community Program to document the performance. Click ahead for images from the night.
