Last week Maria Baibakova and Artspace threw a gala dinner in celebration of Frieze New York at the stately James A. Burden House on Manhattan's Upper East Side, drawing a high-powered crowd of museum directors, artists, curators, collectors, and members of the fashion and culture elite. The festive event was alight with lively conversation—and at the end of the night each guest received a special limited-edition artwork by the married artists Rashid Johnson and Sheree Hovsepian, a landmark piece that constitued the pair's first collaborative work. To see images from the party, view the photos below.
