Artist Sloane Tanen Explains Her Work Better Than This Headline Ever Could


Sloane Tanen is an author and artist working in the capricious mode that has propelled Kay Thompson, Josh Schwartz, and Tina Fey to cult status: adolescent angst for adults. On display at Washington Square Windows — an all-hours gallery–slash–window display that gives Bloomingdale’s a run for its window shoppers — are her chenille chicks in various postures of anxious frivolity. There’s something for everyone: the Blair Waldorfs, the Seth Cohens, and the Stewies of the world.
