The Art Gallery takeover is back! Experience ARTIST ROOMS: Alex Katz after hours with a tribute to 1960s New York. Enjoy a creative, vibrant atmosphere with music, cocktails, hands on activities and performances by local poets and musicians, inspired by the works in the exhibition.
A towering figure in contemporary art, Katz is still living and working in New York. Inspired by 60s American fashion and advertising. his stylish portraits are seen as important precursors to Pop Art and this one-off, glamourous event will recreate the world of Alex Katz within the exhibition.
Throughout the evening local spoken word collective SpeakEasy and acoustic duo Soulway will be responding to the works of Alex Katz with live performances in the exhibition in the exhibition space.
Add your face to our collective artwork inspired by Katz's Green Table - a stunning sculptural piece in the exhibition, documenting the conversations and relationships around Alex Katz. We will create a Carlisle version with self-portraits created in a range of media by our Late Night Katz attendees!
