Hint Gallery: The Metal Ball

We know what you're thinking, but no, The Metal Ball is not a bionic anything and has nothing to do with buns of steel. It's a remake of the Bauhaus Metallic Festival of 1929, when the seminal German school was wrapped in metallic materials and guests partied like it was, well, 1929. C'mon, that was futuristic for the Twenties. And this time, The Metal Ball is organized by Performa, the performance art biennial that had Miuccia Prada enthralled last year. But wait, there's ore. Guests are asked to dress in metallics, which they can get at the Metal Shop—a pop-up store-within-a-store at Tribeca Issey Miyake selling the likes of Michael Kors, Puma and Patrick Ervell—through the day of the event on November 15. All of which is another way of saying the metallic trend is not over.
