Friday Nights at the de Young is a free after-hours art “happening” in the museum’s public spaces.

The event has a new theme every time, but typically includes an eclectic mix of live music, dance performances, film screenings, panel discussions, lectures, artist demos, hands-on art activities, and more. Plus, the observation tower is open until 8 pm.

There’s also Free Museum Admission during Friday Nights at the de Young which includes access to the permanent collection galleries (Please note that access to any special exhibitions require a separate paid ticket)

Please note that Friday Nights at the de Young in the past has been weekly during the Spring and Summer, but that things may change in 2018.

Founding member Hisham Mayet of legendary label Sublime Frequencies visits the de Young for a double header of rare and intimate sounds and images gathered from explorations around the world.

  • 6–7:30 pm: “Outernational” Music in Wilsey Court
  • 7:30–8:15 pm: Lecture and listening: Charles Duvelle – Disques OCORA in Piazzoni Murals Room

First, Mayet DJs a mix of international folk and pop music gathered in both urban and rural frontiers from his extensive music collection gathered throughout travels and explorations in Southeast Asia, North Africa, West Africa, and the Middle East. With releases like “Choubi Choubi: Folk and pop sounds from Iraq” and “Radio Niger,” the label’s work in archiving and field recording “outernational” creative practice through a kind of punk ethnomusicology is characterized by an embrace of traditional and innovative forms of performance and other human expression.

After, Mayet will lecture and share images and sounds from his latest project based on in-depth collaboration with pioneering composer and musicologist Charles Duvelle.

Mayet will speak about his research on Duvelle, assembled into a limited edition publication, exhaustive and richly illustrated, that collects field recordings and field photography and an extensive interview between Mayet and Duvelle. The Photographs of Charles Duvelle: Disques OCORA and Collection PROPHET will be available for sale in the de Young store.
