Following last year’s sold-out debut, don’t miss the second installment of SMASH, the city’s hottest new art party, art directed by Justin Broadbent.
We live in a world where we are constantly looking back at ourselves and peering into the lives of others. We walk around with little black mirrors in our pockets. Some call it narcissism, others call it evolution.
SMASH: Voyeur*ish is a one-night exploration of our human curiosity; an immersive contemporary art experience inspired by the work of artists like Cindy Sherman, Nan Goldin, Damien Hirst, and Banksy.
• Interactive installations by top local artists
• Entertainment by DJ Killa Kels
• Bites by Adrian Niman and Matt Blondin of Food Dudes
• Wines by Southbrook Vineyards, original cocktails, and more
It will be a night of looking without consequences, other than being watched in return…
Last year’s event was sold out, so get your tickets early!
SMASH is hosted by the Gardiner Museum’s Young Patrons Circle. Young Patrons receive a complimentary ticket. Learn more about joining.
Full artist line up to be announced in April.
