We’re pleased to announce Cultural Studies*, a benefit for Triple Canopy featuring two special performances. Violinist Sarah Neufeld (Arcade Fire) will play a solo set of original compositions. Musician Damon McMahon (Amen Dunes) and visual artist Tom Thayer will debut a new collaborative performance: a scripted abstraction, a narrated projection, a chance meeting at a banquet hall of harmonic characters and color forms. They will be joined by collaborators John Jines and Xander Duell.

Tickets begin at $120 and include a seated dinner and drinks.
