Friday Nights at the de Young | April 27, 2012

2012 Artist Fellow Monique Jenkinson (aka Fauxnique) celebrates Jean Paul Gaultier: From Sidewalk to Catwalk with Making Scenes and brings the nightclub to the museum, curating a Friday Night at the de Young packed with the creative energy of San Francisco’s club scenes.

  • Kids get to dress drag queens –  The evening begins at the hands on art-making table in which child-led teams embellish outfits for drag luminaries, resulting in a wondrous fashion parade
  • Club Cultures History Lecture Series – Waiyde Palmer, longtime artist, activist, bartender, and self-proclaimed club-crawler will give a talk on the history of queer club cultures in SF and beyond.
  • Our People – Fauxnique creates a dance/installation inspired by the work of Jean Paul Gaultier – his icons, fetishes, and light-hearted, humanistic irreverence.
  • The vivacious and extremely talented Tim Carr sings a live set of seriously danceable electro-pop.
  • DJ, style maven and Gracious Grande Dame of the club scene Juanita More spins a collection of hot soul, house and disco to finish the party
