On October 29th through 31st 2015 in Detroit comes the 8th annual assemblage of extraordinary artists from across this world to display their most introspective creations:
DAMNED – An Exhibition of Enlightened Darkness
From the infamous to the freshest of local and international talent, this prodigious congregation will allow us a glimpse within the diverse shadows of id and ego…of overall mind and encompassing soul guaranteed to intrigue, disturb, inspire or repulse. Rising from within the ashes of Detroit’s historic institution of Devil’s Night, this is not Halloween-themed art but an immersion within the immeasurable realms of consciousness through an elegant ambiance of live ethereal music and cirque/butoh-inspired performances.
There are 3 nights of DAMNED, each with its own distinct theme for the ambiance and performances that flourish within the exhibition:
– Thu 10/29 “The Darkness” – A night of introspective exploration within the shadowed and primal essence of self. This opening night features an intimate VIP Preview/Artist Reception, a formal absinthe tasting, an on-site chef preparing hot hors d’œuvres and experimental aerial and butoh-inspired performances.
– Fri 10/30 “The Enlightenment” – A night of the extrospective self enlightened through light, fire and the ethereal. This gala night features a VIP sampling of internationally-inspired tapas with with paired libations and exotic fire performances.
– Sat 11/31 “The Masquerade” – A festive celebration through a menagerie of exotic cirque, sensual rhythms and masquerade. This closing night features the formal mask-mandatory Masquerade Ball, an elegant seated 6-course aphrodisiac-inspired dinner, sensuous dance performance interludes, the aural ambiance of DJ Mikey and DJ Zumby from Strangeways Radio with DJ Slofu from Happy Endings and a menagerie of strolling cirque performances all night.
All nights feature a sensually lush VIP Mezzanine with live televised performance simulcasts all night, the gallery store to purchase a diversity of art and merchandise, our lovely Devil Girl hostesses and, of course, the art.
