Tap into your unconscious and dress to express your true self at an haute bash celebrating fashion and the radical artists who brought self-expression to a new level.
Dancing. Voguing. Open bar. Hosted by Pussy Noir
Make a statement with your most extra outfit at the HIRSHHORN BALL, inspired by surrealism, the artistic movement that championed radical expression through the irrational, the eclectic, and the unexpected. Raise a glass to fashion, authenticity, and self-expression with local icon Pussy Noir and expect the unexpected with interactive pop-up performances by some of DC’s chicest entertainers from House of Sonique. Show us surrealness. Show us you!
All ticket purchases benefit Hirshhorn Museum programs.
The festivities will be hosted by Pussy Noir, an androgynous character developed and performed by D.C. native Jason Barnes. With one foot in the art world and the other in the nightlife community, Barnes invites audiences along for a full sensory experience. Don’t miss your chance to brush shoulders with Pussy Noir and other sensational drag personalities, including Betty O’Hellno, Ana Latour and JoAnn Fabrixx.
Enjoy an open bar with specialty cocktails, make yourself known on the dance floor with beats by DJs Jacq Jill and Dvonne, and witness a live painting by performance artist Liu Bolin. Style yourself to the nines with on-site glam, strike a pose with open-air photo booth shoots, speak your truth with exclusive access to the participatory Truth Booth installation, and more!
