Event Description

PopRally presents Arty Gras, a Mardi Gras–themed evening celebrating the exhibition Francis Picabia: Our Heads Are Round so Our Thoughts Can Change Direction.

Francis Picabia, a notorious reveler and party-organizer, produced spectacular galas with special costumes, menus, and scenery, and his so-called Monster paintings of the 1920s include carnival-themed caricatures of the Côte d'Azur leisure class. Now it’s time for you to unleash your inner party monster with us. Celebrate Mardi Gras the way it was meant to be celebrated, with music, dance, drinks, and art.

Arty Gras features a special viewing of the Picabia retrospective, a live performance by High and Mighty Brass Band, drinks, and Picabia-inspired Mardi Gras masks designed by artist Damien Davis. Picabia or Mardi Gras–themed costumes are encouraged!

Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Admission includes drinks, music, after-hours access to Francis Picabia: Our Heads Are Round so Our Thoughts Can Change Direction (7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m), and a Damien Davis mask to take home.

PopRally is a series of events at MoMA and MoMA PS1 that serve as a gateway for young and diverse audiences to engage with the Museum. Led by a cross-departmental committee of Museum staff, PopRally produces dynamic programs including artist collaborations, performances, film screenings, and digital content that encourage new and experimental ways of engaging with modern and contemporary art.
