Ready for one hell of a good time? Daybreaker is bringing their signature, soul-nourishing mix of love and mischief to the museum with The Golden Soirée, a dance party in honor of Hell: Arts of Asian Underworlds. It’s their first ever dance at the Asian Art Museum!

The Golden Soirée

Sunday, July 9, 2023 | 10:00a-1:00p
Asian Art Museum, 200 Larkin Street, SF
Tickets – Dance It Out (11am – 1pm): $35, Yoga + Dance (10am – 1pm): $60

Add-on: $15 – Access to “Hell: Arts of Asian Underworlds” exhibition, a tour of “Hell” by its curator, and the collection galleries. [Only valid with a ticket to The Golden Soirée]

After touring the exhibition to explore how cultures across Asia imagine the realm of perdition, hit the dance floor to lose yourself in a celebration of being alive. Come dressed as the deity that you are — whether sprinkled in gold or covered in it from head to toe — and enjoy live DJs and yoga instruction, non-alcoholic cocktails courtesy of Parch, superfood-rich snacks from Perfect Bar, and some devilishly fun surprises. 


Hell: Arts of Asian Underworlds is a rollicking romp through the many ways that Asian visual cultures have imagined the afterlife of the condemned over time. Paintings, sculptures, maps, puppets, and religious objects from India, Tibet, China, Korea, Japan, Indonesia, Thailand, Myanmar, and the Philippines offer a colorful variety of visions of the underworld, ranging from the serious to the light-hearted.

The majority of the 48 works on view are on loan from other institutions and collections; of the pieces from the museum collection, several are newly acquired and are being shown here for the first time.
