Art, music, and cocktails remixed at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

Gardner After Hours
After Hours at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

Isabella Stewart Gardner, consummate Victorian social diva and artistic muse that she was, would surely approve of the monthly After Hours events occurring at her museum. Every third Thursday, the doors are open late for cocktails, music, and explorations of the quirky galleries by romantically moody light.

Tonight’s program, “Remix,” draws inspiration from Gardner’s knack for cross-cultural artistic mashups, such as Chinese sculptures with early Italian paintings and Venetian lace against Spanish and French leather wall upholstery. In the courtyard, Brooklyn’s acclaimed DJ Rehka spins a blend of traditional South Asian Bhangra and Hip Hop. Activities include gallery discussions that shed light on visiting artist Su-Mei Tse’s multimedia piece Floating Memories, and the history of John Singer Sargent’s iconic portrait of Gardner, who caused a scandal with her form-fitting dress and frank gaze.

When and where:
Thursday, October 15. 5:30-9:30. Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, 280 The Fenway. Tickets — Members: FREE | Adults: $12 | College Students: $5.
