We originally planned to link to the VF.com daily story called “10 Conversations We’d Love to Overhear at the MoMA” about a party at MoMA for Eli Broad. When we read it, we had a hard time finding much satire in the list. Then we noticed the picture of Leon Black, principal of the private equity firm Apollo, was some other character who used to be Joan Rivers sidekick. Check out picture number 2. Now, look at a picture of Leon Black (right).
Here’s a sample of the humor, click through on the link below for the rest of the 10 head-scratching items:
A couple hundred of New York’s rich and powerful are set to gather at the MoMA this afternoon to honor philanthropist Eli Broad, who is being presented with the David Rockefeller Award. Here’s what we think the mix of businessmen, do-gooders, socialites, artists, and art dealers will be chatting about.
1. Larry Gagosian, art dealer extraordinare, scolding fellow dealer David Zwirner for talking to The New York Times—and gently threatening to call upon Russian “pals” to keep Zwirner from speaking to the press again.
2. Leon Black telling MoMA president emerita “Aggie” Gund that he thinks the party tablecloths were purchased at one of Black’s Linens & Things going-out-of-business sales.
