The Amazing Velvet Experience

Party favours: Come for the party, go home with a velvety treasure. Every ticket buyer will be randomly matched with their very own black velvet painting, to be taken home at the end of the night. Which one will be yours? Some might be considered velvet masterpieces, all are guaranteed to be a hilarious keepsake from an excellent night out. From a feature presentation to live music, a nacho station, churros, cocktails and art adventures, the night will be a celebration of retro kitsch. Whether you wear your latest high-fashion ensemble or break out the velour and bellbottoms, dress to impress.

Adad Hannah: Artist talk

Join internationally renowned artist Adad Hannah, as he speaks about his artwork, in particular his project The Raft of the Medusa: Saint-Louis, currently on view at Glenbow. Since 2001 Adad Hannah has been working on his series Stills; silent videos that exist at the intersection of performance, photography, and video. Based on the 19th-century practice of tableaux vivants, Hannah's videos, photographs, and installations look at how we perform as spectators, and how our gaze can be a constructive one as we try to make sense of ourselves and the world around us.
