Artists on Art at the Rubin Museum

rubin museum logo

ArtAsiaPacific is once again sponsoring a set of free talks at the Rubin Museum of Art called Artists on Art. One of the artists in our curated exhibition at Dam, Stuhtrager in October, Jaishri Abichandani, is giving the talk on September 29th.

There is no charge to attend, or to visit the galleries of the museum on Friday nights. In addition to Artists on Art there are theater programs at 7 p.m., Cabaret Cinema at 9:30 p.m. and either a DJ or live music in the K2 Lounge (which has nice drinks).

We saw Hiroshi Sunairi and DJ Spooky during the set earlier in the year. Highly recommended.
