Cur-ATE: Contemporary China

Tuesday 8/13 at 6:00pm

LACMA

Start the evening weaving art and culinary history in an after-hours private tour of the exhibition The Allure of Matter: Material Art from China with Maite. The exhibition brings together works from the past four decades with media ranging from the commonplace to the unconventional, the natural to the synthetic, the elemental to the composite: from plastic, water, and wood, to hair, tobacco, and Coca-Cola. Then move to Ray’s to enjoy dinner with a specially designed menu offering a contemporary take on Chinese and Asian fusion cuisine. ($100 members/$134 with wine-tasting; $110 non-members/$144 with wine-tasting)
