Enjoy the latest Cincinnati Art Museum exhibit from the comfort of your living room during “Art After Dark at Home” from 7 pm to 9 pm on Friday March 26th.

The exhibition, Future recovery: Close the parallel, “Allows the new and the unexpected to dialogue with pleasure with the historical”, according to the CAM. In the digital version of the museum’s Last Friday Cocktail Party, guests can enjoy a 360-degree virtual view of the gallery space and some exclusive video firsts – including a cocktail tutorial from the HomeMakers Bar and Wavelette’s local music – via Facebook or YouTube.

Additionally, there will be behind-the-scenes interviews with artists Katie Parker and Guy Michael Davis, both of whom brought their artistic skills to the exhibition.

Davis and Parker are former faculty members of the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP) at the University of Cincinnati. Their studio collaboration is called “Future Retrieval”.

“The contemporary work of Future Retrieval … interweaves with selections from the museum’s permanent collection,” explains CAM. “Traditional motifs are reinterpreted. The natural world permeates, with a fascinating effect, and familiar materials are reworked into surprising new forms. “

The exhibit can also be viewed in person until August 29. Registration is required to visit the museum.
