GEN ART – 7 Reasons to Find Time

Hey Jez - Danielle Staub demonstrates how $5 chocolate bars help her fit into 7 for All Mankind JeansGEN ART, the NYC “hipster-hype” fest for all things culture is gearing up for another interesting year. At it’s launch party Wednesday evening, held at 7 for All Mankind’s West Broadway locale, emerging talent mixed with some established/recognized talent in art, film(TV) and fashion. Filmmakers and budding stars shared their “war” stories on what might be the next great movement. Recessions are usually beacons for change – shift points – from what the last boom left us. Some looked like they were indeed now homeless – others were relishing in the Cyndi Lauper, Warhol wanna be style found in the 8o’s. Can’t blame them – their parents have taught them all about those roaring 80s while reliving it for themselves.

Yet what a serious festival like GEN ART NYC will do in it’s 7 days of premiers, parties and networking should leave a directional impact on entertainment going forward. As so eloquently reported by our friends over at Jezebel, there were a group of emerging celebs who roamed in their promotional best – blue jeans (looks like they fit).
