For one night only, experience Night at the Museum, an after-hours party celebrating the final weeks of Rirkrit Tiravanija: A LOT OF PEOPLE with special performances, interactive artworks, music, dancing, and more. Take in DJ sets from Patia Borja (@patiasfantasyworld) and Spencer Sweeney, as well as Brian DeGraw from legendary New York band Gang Gang Dance. Get a screen printed t-shirt made in Tiravanija’s untitled 2011 (t-shirt, no t-shirt)—with select phrases that are only available at the event. Bring your A-game for a doubles ping-pong tournament and compete to win special artist-designed prizes. The entire museum will be open until midnight.

Music and poetry are performed all night, with a festival that features artists within New York’s experimental music community: artist and improviser C. Spencer Yeh, cellist and sound artist Leila Bordreuil, art rock ensemble Das Audit (Craig Kalpakijan, Eve Essex, Dan Fox), artists Che Chen & Talice Lee, and more special guests. All participatory works in the exhibition will be activated: for a late-night buzz, Turkish coffee is served in untitled 1993 (café deutschland), and tea is available in untitled 1992 (cure). Plus, drinks will be available for purchase at the bar. Tickets are required for this event.
