The museum’s thrice-yearly late-night art party offers after-hours access to new exhibitions in the galleries, plus a special set by DJ Zelium, who is heavily influenced by the late-’90s house and techno music scene of NYC. “Before the War: Photographs of Syria by Peter Aaron” depicts images of historic monuments and cultural sites that have been damaged through civil war in the past decade. “Drama and Devotion in Baroque Rome” demonstrates the influence of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio. Outside in the sculpture garden, Rachel Whiteread presents five cast-stone sculptures arranged in a table setting that offers a place to consider the use of negative space.
Enjoy open art galleries, refreshments and a live house music mix from DJ Zelium. See Calendar Pick on p. 15.
