Kanye West Is Performing At MoMA Next Month


Kanye West has been announced as the entertainment for the Museum of Modern Art’s Party in the Garden, a benefit for various operating costs of the museum that includes the upkeep of the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden, on May 10. (The garden will also serve as the venue for West’s performance.) Individual tickets to the whole gala — which includes dinner, the show, and hobnobbing with members of New York’s philanthropic elite — start at $2,500, but if you’re feeling a bit tightwaddish, tickets for the show only are going for $150. (They go up to $250 day-of, should there be tickets still left by then.)
