As with all art openings, the crowds come to congratulate the artist (of course), to see the work (naturally), and also (duh!) for the open bar, boozy schmoozing, and those adorable little hors d’oeuvres. And the crowd that came out last night (Aug. 7) was no different, but rather than saluting the latest artist to hit the gallery scene, they were there to congratulate Underworld’s Karl Hyde and Rick Smith, and their collaborators Simon Taylor and John Warwicker, who are collectively the artists behind Beautiful Burnout, a multimedia collection unveiled at the Jacobson Howard Gallery on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
