Did you miss out on last night’s chashama Gala, the industry’s most colorful and outrageous event of the year?

Don’t worry — The Real Deal has an inside look at the nyotaimori, BDSM booths and over-the-top artwork from some of the city’s most cutting-edge artists.

The “free-form” event at the former Condé Nast building saw attendees exploring atmospheric environments, discovering interactive performances and enjoying hors d’oeuvre, provided by award-winning restaurant Aureole. Funds raised will assist chashama in partnering with property owners to activate unused real estate for the city’s artistic community.
