THIS MONTH: SEPTEMBER 2021
Restaurant openings, new art exhibitions and the resurrection of a cult comedy show are just three of the things we're looking forward to in September:
The Other Two
It's been over two years since the comedy show from SNL writers Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider aired on Comedy Central, but the wait for its return was worthwhile. Now streaming on HBO Max, the series centered on the entertainment industry in New York maintains the rapid-fire jokes and familiar character archetypes that endeared it to audiences, albeit with a slightly more grown-up feel.
The New Orleans-based artist and celebrated Queen of Bounce music (whose voice can be heard over the opening of Beyonce's Formation music video) is embarking on a nationwide tour. The traveling show is the lead-up to her latest project set to drop in November.
Marcel Dzama Who Loves the Sun
One of the biggest names in contemporary art, Marcel Dzama is debuting new work with his eleventh solo show at David Zwirner since joining the gallery in 1998. The group of works was created (and partially influenced by) the Covid-19 pandemic and its subsequent lockdown. All of them are rendered with Dzama's signature dream-like sensibility, offering a sense of hope amidst the fear and anxiety of recent times.
Les Trois Chevaux
The pandemic forced acclaimed chef and restauranteur Angie Mar to shutter her legendary Manhattan eatery, The Beatrice Inn. With renewed vigor, Mar opened up her latest hotspot this summer with a name that translates to 'The Three Horses', the childhood nickname she bestowed on her father and his two brothers. The restaurant's interior and menu both recall great New York City French restaurants of the past, while looking to the future of fine dining.
NY Luxury Design Fair
Taking place in New York's light-filled Javits Center, this year's NY Luxury Design Fair is designed to be an immersive experience with top vendors. For those as interested in art as in design, you're in luck: the design fair will be concurrent with top art showcase, The Armory Show, which is also located in the Javits Center.
Altuzarra Runway Show
Over the past few years, some of New York's top fashion talent has decamped to show in Paris. Many observed the move as a sign New York Fashion Week was on the decline, too crowded and not as exciting as it once was. Joseph Altuzarra is one such designer who showed in the French capital in recent years, but he is making his homecoming for New York's Spring-Summer 2022 presentations. New York is healing, indeed.
