Celebrate the last Art After Dark of 2018 at the Cincinnati Art Museum on Wednesday, Nov. 21

CINCINNATI— Cincinnati Art Museum’s last Art After Dark of 2018 will be celebrated on one of the biggest party nights of the year.

At the Cincinnati Art Museum’s FREE night-before-Thanksgiving celebration Art After Dark: Confess Yourself, visitors can explore identity and the masks we wear on Wednesday, November 21, 5–9 p.m.

Art After Dark guests will enjoy live performances from DJ Mowgli, Black Signal, and Pones, food for purchase from Eli’s BBQ, specialty cocktails, docent-led tours and free access to the special exhibitions The Fabric of India and Life: Gillian Wearing.

Confess Yourself celebrates special exhibition Life: Gillian Wearing, on view through December 30. Wearing’s photographs and videos illuminate unspoken dimensions of our most common relationships and acts, shedding light on the ways we expose or conceal interior thoughts and desires. The exhibition includes a concise selection of the artist’s iconic lens-based works along with several new projects receiving their world premiere in Cincinnati.
