Join our popular monthly mixer for arts and culture enthusiasts. Mingle one more time in the exhibition Yasumasa Morimura: Ego Obscura and enjoy snacks, drink specials and music! About Yasumasa Morimura: Ego Obscura: This fall, join us for the first NY institutional solo exhibition of one of Japan's most prolific and versatile contemporary artists, Yasumasa Morimura. Ego Obscura highlights Morimura's 30-year-long project of excavating "the self" from layers of art history, Japanese postwar history, and personal history. In addition to major photographic self-portraits, for which Morimura transformed himself into iconic artistic and pop culture figures, the exhibition will also feature the U.S. premiere of the artist's first full-length video work, Egó Sympósion (2016) and his latest cinematic installation Egó Obscura (2018), in conjunction with a live performance, Morimura’s Nippon Cha Cha Cha!, staged by the artist on the opening weekend. Must be 21+ to drink alcohol. Photo by © Daphne Youree More Info
