The Big Apple (2)

I am in New York for the annual gala of Royal Academy America.   It was quite a wonderful event (in the American sense of ‘quite’):  champagne supplied by Moet & Chandon;  honorees including Cornelia Parker and Jeff Koons;  and a speech by Agnes Gund, the President Emerita of the Museum of Modern Art, in honour of Jeff Koons which was as thoughtful and profound a statement of one generation in support of the next as I have ever heard.   I tried to take a picture of Agnes Gund as she gave her speech but failed because it was very unrhetorical:-

I did better with Jeff Koons:-

And lastly I was full of admiration for Eddie Peake who spoke about Usher:-
