DESCRIPTION

“Seduction”reveals the urban pleasures of Edo-period Japan (1615-1868) through more than 60 works of art, including paintings, kimonos and an almost 58-foot-long handscroll vividly portraying a visit to the Yoshiwara—Edo’s most celebrated pleasure district.

Join us Thurs, Feb 19, 7–11 pm for Seduction’s opening party: Courtesans, Cooks, Samurai and Servants.Interdisciplinary artist Midori will return with cardboard props, wigs and a frisky cast of characters to pepper the party and bring the art of Seduction to life.

Drink and dance to sexy beats by Proof (Massive Selector) as the bold and bawdy evening unfolds.
