CANCELLED: Asian Art Museum: $10 Thursday Nights | SF

> EVENT UPDATE: This event is no longer taking place.

Spring and summer mean later sunsets and later hours at the Asian Art Museum.

From February 23 through September 28, 2017, they’ll be open ’til 9pm on Thursdays. You can spend an evening in their beautiful building enjoying the galleries, fun talks, lively gatherings and intimate hangs with artists.  Except for certain special events, general admission for Thursday nights is just $10 for adults (normally $15). 

From luxurious ornamentation to austere simplicity, from kitsch to camp, gorgeousness is an evolving and dynamic concept that has been conceived in many ways and has taken various visual forms.

Presenting key works from SFMOMA and the Asian Art Museum in provocative and stimulating new contexts, Gorgeous will encourage viewers not only to marvel at the works on view, but also to engage the question “What is gorgeous?” How does the placement of a Mark Rothko painting near a Buddhist mandala, or a 2000-year-old Chinese tomb figure near self-portraits sculpted in soap and chocolate by Janine Antoni bring new aspects of each work into focus? Through two very different collections with very different histories, Gorgeous will inspire debate and discovery.
