MISO has serious street-cred and we are so excited to be taking her to New York City with The School in October.
We sat her down and got the goss on what her favourite things to do when she hits the ground in the city that never sleeps:
What is the first thing you do when you arrive in New York City?
Text all my friends!
Where is your favourite cafe/bistro/restaurant?
Cold beers on the Highline.
Your favourite NYC museum or gallery and why?
Dia Beacon... ! Minimal, difficult works, you know I'm there.
In your words, what will the students from your NYC class experience and take-away from the class?
Whiskey & scalpels - and everything that ensues from that combination.
What is your travel essential?
I'm not sure if he counts as a travel essential, but whenever I'm in an airport, I always find myself listening to Mississippi John Hurt. Maybe I can't travel without him anymore.
What can you not leave NYC without doing?
Leaving Steph Somebody a hangover to write home about.
- Is there someone that you will tattoo when you are in NYC?
..... Steph Somebody! Maybe even in conjunction to the previous question.
