Held at the Meatpacking District’s Highline Stages, many flocked to the latest #ArtoftheChase themed event. As the likes of DJ Mos and DJ Hudson Mohawke spun body-moving, head-knodding tunes, guests were guided through the Hennessy and Ryan McGinness partnership entrance, beginning with a motion tracking tunnel of Ryan’s blackhole artwork and continuing into a movie theatre highlight reel of the creation process.

Guests then entered the black light performance space, where a touch screen station allowed guests to create their own bottle art before posing in front of it with friends in classic photo booth-style. The adjacent bar was also in full swing, serving Hennessy-fused cocktails like the Hennessy V.S Infinity & Hennessy V.S Ginger Fizz.
