Grit & Glamour: The Gorgeous Opening Party
The Asian Art Museum opens its special exhibition, Gorgeous, with the Grit & Glamour party. Dress up or dress down. We don’t care, as long as you bring it. Take your nails to the next level
with TopCoat Nail Studio. Boogie to the bottomshakin’ beats of DJs Dr. Sleep, Robot Hustle
and Natalie Nuxx. The International Haus of Nu Benetton will present a runway performance of
vicious voguing. Bring your loved ones or make new ones, and let’s get our freak on. PS: the
afterparty, Some Thing Gorgeous, will be at The Stud ($10 cover).
Palimpsest with Ajit Chauhan
Part of the Artists Drawing Club
Thursday, June 26, 6:30–9 p.m.
Loggia, free with museum admission ($5 after 5 p.m.)
Join artist Ajit Chauh in Palimpsest as he uses the museum as a platform to draw connections between ideas, times, cultures and the broader world. Palimpsest is a study in reincarnations: a life erased to make room for another life, with traces or ghosts of the “other.” The Asian Art Museum—formerly the Main Public Library—still houses the twenty-four quotations chosen by former mayor Edward Robeson Taylor, inscribed in the toast-tinted travertine above the grand staircase, echoing the building’s former life. Palimpsest will be a playful intervention on these inscriptions.
