Upcoming Awesomeness

8 10 2009

We’re a little starstruck here in the Public Programs office, not only because Ben Affleck was filming his newest movie right outside our door last week, but also because DJ Rekha is going to be spinning from the Gardner Museum Courtyard! Suffice it to say, we’re pretty pumped that she’ll be at After Hours next week. If you don’t get enough of her at the Gardner, you can always head over to the Middle East Upstairs in Cambridge where she’ll be spinning post AH. To hear a little more about her work, check out this interview from NPR.

October 15, Remix:

We’re going to remix tonight with the museum’s galleries as inspiration. Ever notice how Gardner layered unusual things together? Chinese sculptures with early Italian paintings or Venetian lace against Spanish and French leather wall upholstery – total remix!

  • Courtyard Music: DJ Rekha joins us straight from Brooklyn to spin Bhangra-style! From 5:30-7pm and then again from 8:15-9pm.
  • Gallery Talk @ 7pm: Gallery Talk @ 7pm: Join Jane Farver, Director of the Vera List Center at MIT, for a talk about Floating Memories
  • Viewfinder Conversations: Join a discussion about John S. Sargent’s famous portrait of Isabella Gardner (every half-hour), plus other impromptu gallery discussions (6 to 8:30PM)
  • Sketching in the Galleries: Drop by the Titian Room and sketch for a while, from 6-9pm.

And whatever else lies in store!
