Yoshitomo Nara, who apparently was arrested the day before the opening of his new exhibition at Marianne Boesky, was on hand for a packed celebration that included performances by Japanese musicians Oorutaichi and M.A.G.O. Nara’s new mixed media structures, Green House and Orange House, were even bigger hits.
