A night to celebrate art world renegades.

In-Gallery Artist Intervention
5:00-8:00 p.m.
In the spirit of art history’s creative pranksters and the 100th anniversary of Duchamp’s infamous submission of a urinal to the 1917 armory exhibition, the Dufala brothers poke fun at the status enjoyed by collected art and artists by hiding contemporary objects, personal belongings and small sculpture in the museums galleries. A dada inspired scavenger hunt in and among the works of art throughout the museum, this intervention juxtaposes the pedestrian and the rare, intention and accident and comments on the public use of cultural space.

DJ lil’dave
5:30 p.m.
As a member of the Illvibe Collective, Lil Dave has been pushing the boundaries of hip hop turntablism for over 15 years. By mixing genres like funk, broken beat, house, bossa nova, electro, and soul, this maverick DJ is dedicated to creating the freshest sounds around.

Poetry Workshop: Text & Context
5:30-7:30 p.m.
Resnick Rotunda 161

Brian Sanders’ JUNK
