Asian Art Museum’s $10 Thursday Nights | SF
Get tied up exploring the meanings and possibilities of the word “fetish” in Evoco, a performance artwork by Midori.
Evoco will erode and generate boundaries in equal measure, combining flowers, Japanese rope bondage, flesh (yes, there may be a bit of nudity) and sumi ink to transform a moving body into a series of restrained sculptures and residual prints. Audience members will be invited to respond to this arrestingly beautiful and one-of-a-kind event by creating artwork of their own.
It starts at 6pm and goes until 8:45pm. It’ll be a slowly building ambient piece so you can flow in and out.. there will be sketch material available and I hope you’ll take pix and vids.
The evening also includes a gallery talk by Jeff Durham, assistant curator of Himalayan art at the Asian Art Museum, titled “Gold Rush: The Aura of an Ore” as a part of the Gorgeous Idea talk series.
Admission is just $5 and includes admission to the “Gorgeous” exhibition.
TopCoat Nail Studio will be adorning nails with fresh designs inspired by the stunning artwork in Gorgeous.
