Kanye West at Coachella (more by David Andrako)
Kanye West

Kanye West will play the annual Party in the Garden benefit after-party at MoMA on May 10th. Tickets are on sale with all proceeds going toward "the Museum's general operating fund, supporting our award-winning educational programs and the care, study, and exhibition of the collection." The cheapest ticket is $150. That gets you into the after-party with Kanye, but not entrance to the VIP lounge or to the dinner or cocktail party earlier in the night. Those tickets will cost you anywhere from $500 to $100,000 (for a table).

Karen O & Nick Zinner played last year. Estelle, M.I.A. and James Murphy have all played in the past too.

Kanye

i'm a member of moma. i adore the place. however, this is a little disappointing, albeit, not surprising. thinking of the early years of moma when they supported people like john cage and more avant-garde works with regard to music, kanye west is a weak choice at best. eh, what are you going to do. looking forward to the de kooning show in september though!

Can't Kanye do a proper tour already and not a party with art snobs?

I mean...$150 is probably what his show would cost when he does a proper tour so...makes sense.

I'm sure somehow Frohawk will get in for free.

Since his Bowery show was $100/ticket, this isn't that bad of a deal.

Well considering he won't be playing a full set and it will be a stripped down affair and not his full blown performance like you would see at MSG, I would say it is not a great deal

I would pay that for Tyler the Creator, but not Kanye

5:18, I'm pretty sure Frohawk knows Kanye so he will most likely be on the guest list.

i like that song on the beatles album "cry baby cry". i hope mr. west decides to do a cover. maybe with scantily clad women. that'll be special.

is Kayne parachuting into this show?

Posted by Anonymous | April 21, 2011 7:01 PM

MOMA would need to pay me $100,000 a table to see that fuckhead.

I hope Frohawk doesn't wear his leggings to this.

i'd probably throw down $150 for the lcd reunion, but not just for a james murphy dj set.

Frohawk is actually friends with Kanye. Can someone photoshop him into the photo of Kanye and his other gay black friends?

I just hope Kanye starts ranting about art

$$$ says he makes a comment about how his performance is a work of art in itself

$$$ says that a large portion of the crowd in attendance has white wine and hummus platters in their stainless steel refrigerators.
