Endless craft beer and cocktails, check. Culinary delights, check. Live music, check. Performance art, check. It’s all happening after hours during SuperSaturated at Young At Art Museum from 7:30 - 11:00 p.m. on Friday, April 27. During this scintillating night for the senses, new spaces will open to guests revealing newly commissioned installation art created just for SuperSaturated, DJ stages, open bars, dance parties and a beer garden that leads to the museum’s main rotating exhibition space celebrating the finale of YAA’s newest exhibition Design YAA. In this two-part exhibition, large-scale, pattern-based installations engulf the entirety of YAA’s 2,400 sq.-ft. Knight Gallery and intimate Orientation Gallery. Both spaces have been completely transformed into optically immersive black and white design-scapes which will be activated by performance artists and musicians throughout the night.
In YAA’s Knight Gallery, guests will experience the eye-popping installation Knight Club by nationally exhibited muralists MILAGROS Collective in which every surface of the space, from floor to ceiling, has been painted in the artists’ signature pattern of radial lines. Guests here will be treated to live music by Mo’ Booty, Greg Karoshi, OgeeE and more, as well as performances on the main stage within Knight Club throughout the night, curated in collaboration with the artists. The second installation comprising Design YAA is a futuristic environment designed specifically for performance artists to activate entitled “i think i love you, are you ok!?” by Miami-based performance artist sleeper. Pulsing LED panels and video screens will surround experiential performances as guests enjoy signature cocktails and mouthwatering tastings integrated into the museum’s interactive, permanent exhibits.
Artistic performances and installations by artists including Francesco Lo Castro, Gustavo Oviedo, Haiiileen, Monica McGivern, Amanda Covach and David Anasagasti also are part of the evening’s dynamic events.
