eXit pARTy > Steinkamping

Thursday, Mar 02, 2017 - 7:00 PM-10:00 PM

Take a departure from your typical museum experience at MCASD's new Member event series--the eXit pARTy. From performance art and live music in the galleries, to custom cocktails from local bar and restaurant partners, eXit pARTies aim to excite your senses and offer new ways to experience contemporary art. Non-members may attend with ticket purchase ($25); the event is free to MCASD Members.

Jennifer Steinkamp's massive, room-size installation Madame Curie will serve as the inspiration for eXit pARTy > Steinkamping. Commissioned by MCASD in 2011, this enveloping, panoramic work features an activated field of realistically rendered moving flowers and flowering trees.

The kick-off eXit pARTy will feature performances by contemporary artist Gina Osterloh, live music curated by A SHIP IN THE WOODS, and cocktail creations by STK, one of downtown San Diego's most anticipated restaurants, set to open this spring.

Los Angeles-based artist Gina Osterloh creates performances and drawings for the camera, exploring questions of visibility, identity, and perception. At the eXit pARTy, she will debut Shadow Woman, an intimate performance in which the physical body and its shadow simultaneously oppose and support one another. The performance series at the Museum's 2017 eXit pARTy events are made possible by the underwriting of R F Jefferies and S L DeMartino.

A SHIP IN THE WOODS will curate live music for all MCASD eXit pARTies. A SHIP IN THE WOODS is a non-profit incubator working to engage the community through elevated dialogue in art, science, music, new media, and culture based in Southern California.
