Event Details

Be transported to a world inspired by the Surrealists of 1920's and 30's Paris and New York at this other-worldly, historically-inspired, intoxicatingly beautiful, one-of-a-kind art event created exclusively for the Atlas Obscura Society. 

Enter the charming Roger Smith Hotel, built in the early 20th century as a traveler's bastion of class and creativity. You'll begin in the stunning penthouse that Buckminster Fuller once resided for a spell of inspiration and rest where you'll enjoy complimentary Surrealist cocktails, cabaret-style musical acts, roving performance art, a Surrealist photobooth, and visionary film and poetry readings. When your fancy strikes you, you're invited to have your subconscious read by a sultry fortune teller and be transported to the hotel rooms turned Surrealist portals for a series of secret performances.

Inspired by the Surrealist and Dada movements of the 1920s and '30s, this most unusual evening embraces the wonder, magic, and terror of the human subconscious in a luxuriously enchanting and other-worldly experience. Performance and immersive artworks pay homage to Dali, Magritte, and other Surrealist greats, while also embracing the Surrealist themes that permeate contemporary art-making. Emerging at the desolate aftermath of WWI, Surrealism's roots dealt with similar issues of eros, violence, dreams, time, anxiety, and splendor that captivate artists and thinkers of today. Join us to celebrate the magical strangeness of the Surrealist vision at this dazzlingly transportive evening.

Open bar sponsored by Lucid Absinthe and Brooklyn Gin.

Come dressed in your best 1920's apparel, as your favorite artist, or Surrealist dream-vision.
