RITES: A fundraiser for 2nd Floor Rear 2017

January 14, 2017 | Open House Contemporary

RITES was an evening of rites of passage, rituals of affliction, communal feasting, art-magic, and dancing yourself clean. This subdued Saturnalia at Open House Contemporary featured cocktails by Jonathan Sommer of B!TCH3Z Drinking Project, ten courses of heavy hor d'oeuvres from Chef Cesar Medina-Maldonado, performances, artist-made talismans, self-care, and acts of cathartic release.
