Experience a festive evening inspired by the category-bending artwork of fabric sculptor, dancer, and performance artist Nick Cave. Cave is best known for his soundsuits: wearable fabric sculptures that are whimsical, other-worldly and are constructed from a colorful bricolage of materials including twigs, sisal, beads, sequins and feathers. Engage in an immersive environment where performance art is an agent that blurs identities, class and gender. Indulge in tasty culinary samples and libations and make some art as you enjoy the party of the town!Check out special exhibitions on view: Midnight to the Boom: Painting in India after Independence.
