Thursday, June 5, 2014, New York, NY – Join Empire City Men's Chorus for a provocative evening and private viewing of After Our Bodies Meet: From Resistance to Potentiality, curated by Alexis Handwerker Heller at the Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art. After Our Bodies Meet is "an exhibition of queer artists who create work in resistance to body-centered oppression and invisibility, beginning in the 1970s to today. Themes of reproduction/pleasure, violence, beauty, and reimagining/futurity will be explored as they relate to the physical form." ECMC's upcoming Spring 2015 concert series Transfigurations will also present compelling experiences of human change through the artistic lens of choral music. All proceeds from this evening will go to ECMC to help fund the development of Transfigurations and to continue our mission to commission new works of unique chamber music for men from living talented composers of today.
Tickets are $75 each and include an open bar of white and sparkling wine, cocktails, and catered hors d'oeuvres.
ECMC depends on your support, but, more importantly, we embrace the opportunities that would personally connect our audience with ECMC's membership, its board, and its artistic director in a relaxed environment outside of the performance hall.
Come for a night of art, a night to relax and to socialize--we wouldn't miss it.
