The weather is seasonably cool and a bit overcast today in NYC, and this evening, I am attending a members' preview for the Whitney Biennial. Now, were this a preview at the Met or the Frick, I'd most likely be in a suit, but, as it's the Whitney Biennial, a suit would be a bit much, as some percentage of the attendees usually look as if they've come straight from their painting studios in Bushwick, without bothering to change. I daresay, were there ever to be a museum preview party with a clothing-optional dress code, it would be the Whitney Biennial. I have no idea if the art on view will be of interest, but, if history is any guide, the people-watching will be stellar.
Were I James Abbott Macneil Whistler, I would call my attire today "Arrangement in Grey and Blue", but, as I'm not, I'll just call it "what I chose to wear today".
