James Franco Sits Next to the Best People at Parties


And to prove it, Artforum recounts a scene from last week's dinner thrown by MoMA and Volkswagen: "Madonna sat next to James Franco, who sat next to Marina Abramović, who sat next to Terence Koh, who sat next to Lizzie Fitch at a small table that also included Trecartin, Spike Jonze, Guy Oseary, Daphne Guinness, Martha Wainwright, and professional crier Laurel Nakadate." That's right: Madonna and a professional crier. You readers are really going to have to up your dinner-party game this summer. [Artforum]
