From 7pm until midnight, guests can visit the opening exhibitions NUDE, Candice Breitz’ Whiteface and Juliana Huxtable’s –USSYPHILIA. Museum Staff will be available on-site to provide context for these thought-provoking and in-depth examinations of gender, race, and sexuality. Care to grab a drink while you browse the exhibitions? Step into the newly unveiled Café Bar and let the melodies of Freak de l’Afrique’s DJ Nomi sweep you away.

10pm - Concert in the ballroom

After visiting the exhibitions, the energy escalates to new heights with the opening of our vibrant ballroom. Iconic feminist musician and performance artist Peaches is considered by many as one of the most groundbreaking artists in town, having paved the way for a new, rebellious style of pop music. Also performing is ‘electric diva’ MALONDA.
