Refinery are an ongoing series of late-night art parties themed around current AGA exhibitions featuring projects by artists, designers and performers from the local arts community.
It’s always an adventure, giving you the opportunity to learn something new, have many different experiences during one night out – and try something delicious. At $45 (non members) it’s an incredible experience for the price point – with a new theme every single time. Refinery has been dubbed “one of the best dates we’ve ever been on together”.
November 28 (9pm – 2 am) – Metal Refinery
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.
