Please join us this Saturday, July 22, as I am honored with Cai Guo-Qiang at the Longhouse Reserve:
BOOM! THE COSMIC LONGHOUSE BENEFIT
Our treasured Honorees, Alexandra Munroe and Cai Guo-Qiang
Alexandra’s sweeping exhibition Art and China after 1989: Theater of the World will take over the New York Guggenheim this fall. Cai Guo-Qiang’s solo exhibition October opening at the Pushkin Museum, Moscow in September is directly followed by Cai Guo-Qiang at the Prado: The Spirit of Painting in Madrid. (Since the Prado’s founding in 1819 this is will be the second solo exhibition by a living painter, following that of the late Cy Twombly). And though Nico Muhly’s new Met-commissioned opera Marnie (yes, as in Hitchcock) debuts this year, he too will join this cross-fertile LongHouse evening.
WOW! and BOOM! Yes, we may be treated to a delightful encounter with Cai’s explosion event on this summer evening.
At Jack’s request, you are invited to wear white to our Cosmic Evening.
