Official Description

Be inspired at the Gardner this month as we celebrate two iconic Madonnas! Here are some of the fun activities you can expect during the evening:

Music by DJ DayGlow: DJ DayGlow has created an all vinyl set for the courtyard inspired by divas and femmes. A blend of mainstream and underground electronic music from the past and future: Madonna, Kate Bush, Prince, Lizzy Mercier Descloux, and Grace Jones.

Gallery Perspectiveswith Black Venus: Boston-bred performance artist, Black Venus, will facilitate engaging discussions surrounding the Gardner's latest exhibition, focused on The Annunciation. They will pull from the theme Madonna/Madonna as well as their own performance work to explore the value in centering and empowering femininity.

Performances by Obehi Janice: In this excerpt from her latest work-in-progress titled Selah, award-winning actress and writer Obehi Janice riffs on virginity, love and purity politics.

Cash bar around the Courtyard. Café G open for snacks, dinner, and drinks.
