Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and his wife attended some fancy avant-garde art event in the Hamptons this weekend, where Ross, as you can see, watched a man wrestle a giant fly in the dirt.

Ross is a collector, who, as of a few years ago, owned $150 million worth of fine art.

The commerce secretary has gained some notoriety for falling asleep mid-meeting, but he was decidedly not asleep during this man-fly wrestling match.

Other stuff that Ross might have witnessed at this event, according to Page Six: huge birds playing music on a roof, naked people covered in Saran wrap, a woman in a mask throwing a giant die, and a naked dude digging in sand.

He and his wife left after about an hour, Page Six reported.
