Lady Gaga & Terry Richardson to Sign Books at New Museum

Posted on: November 14th, 2011 at 6:09 am by

Fun house attractions are timeless. Something so seemingly simple as a three-story, 102-foot indoor slide is so far a smashing success for the New Museum on the Bowery. In the two weeks since the ambitious new Carsten Höller installation launched, concert-sized queues have snaked northward toward Stanton Street. But it’s not just attracting the tourist horde. Now the Fame Monster herself wants to steal some of the NewMu spotlight.

Gothamist has it that Lady Gaga and lensman Terry Richardson will both crash the Bowery on November 22 (6 – 9 pm) to promote their new collaborative book project. The photo tome is called LADY GAGA x TERRY RICHARDSON, and “will showcase over 350 photographs taken during the 10 month period in which Richardson followed Lady Gaga and had complete access to her everyday life.” The forthcoming paparazzi shitshow is part of the launch party for the New Museum Store.

Those crazed fans hoping to brush elbows with Gaga must pre-order the $50 book in person at the New Museum Store, starting tomorrow.

The last time both these superstars were muttered in the same sentence was during the Supreme promo push earlier this year. Those bills graced nearly every nook of the Lower East Side for quite some time.
