Inspired by Fritz Lang's classic 1927 science fiction film Metropolis and our current exhibition Living Building Thinking: Art and Expressionism, Metal is your AGA's next installment of our popular Refinery art party. The style of German Expressionism fuses with 1980s German heavy metal music and metal-inspired visuals to create a dark new world that pays homage to both rock and roll and the Expressionist movement. Break out your best metal-inspired fashion, and head to your AGA for the most outstanding party of the year.
METAL Refinery will feature art projects by Elaine Weryshko, Nancy Sandercock, and Jonathan Luckhurst; live interactive activities including continuous line portrait drawing with wire and metal-stamping led by silversmith Dave Curoe; a metal-spinning DJ; German-themed food including mini Human Berliner donuts, sausages and pretzels; and Fritz Lang's Metropolis screening all evening in both Manning Hall and the Ledcor Theatre.
