Eat Your Art: An Alternative Cinco de Mayo

Eat Your Art: An Alternative Cinco de Mayo is the first in a new collaborative series by curator Abby HertzLot 45 Bushwick, and chef Samia Behaya. 

Artist Frida Kahlo was famous for her dinner parties where she combined a diverse group of artists, musicians, writers, and other creatives in her home for a salon that would inevitably turn into a raucous, and sometimes debaucherous melee. In the spirit of her infamous gatherings, we present a fiesta full of everything delectable...including the people. 

The night begins with a four course dinner paired with pieces of poetry, performance art, and music that celebrates the art and culture of Mexico. 

After, the room opens up for a fiesta complete with live band, full mezcal menu, traditional Mexican dance, discoteca dancers, mermaids, and aerialists...

Feel the textures of the words woven in air as you can taste the music around you...

Listen as each course tells a story from a collective imagination
Watch as each performer shares a piece of their own myth and legend...

"Eat Your Art" is an immersive experience for the senses with delectable pairings of art, food, and wine followed by a night of revelry, live music, DJ's, and dancing. On the 5th of May we will be simmering in a juicy pot of luscious discovery and appreciation of who we are, where we come from, and what has all brought us to this moment together.

This is a more grown-up Cinco de Mayo that celebrates the beauty and diversity of Mexican culture, art, literature, and music. A minor holiday in Mexico, Cinco de Mayo gained popularity in 1940's America during the Chicano movement as a way to celebrate heritage in a neighboring land, parts of which were once Mexico itself.

Tableaux - Art Salon & Kinky Mixer

Lot 45 Bushwick and House of Darker present: TABLEAUX, a Monthly Art Salon and Kinky Mixer.

House of Darker is an artistic that weaves together social and creative aims. We are delighted to work with Lot 45, conjuring a fetish-themed setting for the kinky and kink-curious to mix and mingle. 

April's theme is Shiny, Sexy - Latex! 

Our models will be posing in both sleek and theatrical stylings by Kirsten Li Designs. Poses are fodder to spark conversation with like-minded friends and new acquaintances, and inspire those who wish to draw from life. Left your pens at home? Don’t fret, quills and parchment are available for sale. Don't draw? participate in our writing exercise, or just take in the vibe and meet likeminded people. 

We encourage you to come to Tableaux dressed and show off your shiny goods! Latex, vinyl, and pvc Fetish wear is welcome but absolutely not required. Wear your collars and cuffs, but leave your toy bags at home. Tableaux is strictly a mixer and an opportunity for those of all comfort levels to socialize outside of a play environment. We ask that you honor that intention by not engaging in overt scenes. Help us cultivate and normalize a culture of safety and consent by participating in clear verbal consent with your fellow denizens.
