Plan on a Powerhouse Night at the DAM

June 24, 2016, 6-10 pm

For this month’s Untitled, we’re joining in on the action of Women of Abstract Expressionism and celebrating an amazing collection of female artists and women warriors from Denver and beyond. Get ready for a night of laughs, drama, and good times at Untitled: Power House.

Talks and Tours

It’s time for some REAL “girl talk” (sorry, I had to do it) with a selection of artist chats and comedic stylings. Join curator of modern art, Gwen Chanzit, as we celebrate hidden heroines of American art. Gwen will be leading us through the new Women of Abstract Expressionism exhibition–an epic show for the history (or should we say herstory?) books.

Fast forward to 2016 and meet a selection of amazing artists, raising the DAM bar. Katie Fowler and Tamara Leberer will show you the ins and outs of weaving In Motion: An Outdoor Installation, a new plaza installation which puts a whole new spin on the term “ribbon dancer.”

Then, get your picture taken inside the belly of a whale, as you meet Hadley Hooper and the talents behind Tableau, a new installation that has us over the moon!

Next up, things are getting downright silly on a tour for “women and also people who aren’t women” with comedians Mallory Wallace and Timmi Lasley.

The night just wouldn’t be complete without Warm Cookies of the Revolution, and this time around they’re “reconstructing” the narrative and focusing in on female leaders in our own backyard.

Performances

Central City Opera is setting the stage and introducing us to the drama about a real “lady killer” as we “Rome” around with the clandestine crew from Puccini’s Tosca.

Catch the powerhouse poets behind the DCPA original performance of How I Got Over: Journeys in Verse. Join Suzi Q Smith, Toluwanimi Obiwole, and three others for a performance that’s sure to bring the house down.

Finally, it’s time to find the goddess within, with a hilarious performance from Stories on Stage that narrates the tale of a grocery store goddess and the dangers of serving face.

There’s lots more in store! See you Friday night!
