Alyssa Davis Gallery Gala
Venue: 99 Scott
In the wake of the demise of NYC’s most wanted criminal art dealer, we bring you Merde!
On May 26th, Alyssa Davis Gallery will host a gala like no other.
We have outfitted the sprawling 13,000 sq ft venue—99 Scott—to accommodate every pace of party.
The guests will be welcomed with a full red carpet experience staffed with a professional photographer.
The indoor stage features a premium sound system and lighting to host a genius lineup of music that will keep the dance floor going all night.
Beyond the dance floor guests will find multiple bars, spaces to lounge, a live sculpture auction, a video art program, and of course–an ice sculpture.
Outside in a stunning courtyard there will be space to roam, relax, smoke, enjoy food and drinks and get up close and personal with a series of 20+ live performances.
Additionally, we are offering VIP packages including access to a VIP suite with a private bar and courtyard and an exhibition curated by Ludovica Capobianco.
Merde! is organized by Alyssa Davis, Genevieve Goffman, and Rachel Rosheger.
Adorn yourself in your most glamorous look, as a dress code will be strictly enforced! Formal attire, black tie, film noir, old hollywood are all acceptable. Door discretion.
There will be a live silent auction with sculptures by 64 artists on display. Models courtesy of No Agency will be taking bids for the final hours of the auction. Bidding will begin virtually May 1st and end at midnight during the event.

In May of 2021 a private investigator visited Alyssa Davis Gallery with an agenda – to gather enough evidence against Alyssa Davis to prevent the young dealer from showing artwork in her 11th story apartment. Just over a year later, the gallery shuttered its doors on April 3rd, 2022. The final exhibition was Abby Lloyd’s Goodbye Dolly, which was featured in the New York Times, Brooklyn Rail and OFluxo.
A reenactment film of that fateful day in May will feature Ruby McCollister and Matt Mcauley at the scene of the encounter with Abby’s oversized doll as the object of the private investigator’s interest – memorializing the iconic downtown space that has served our community since 2016.
