Will Boys Be Boys? Questioning Adolescent Masculinity in Contemporary Art at the IMA.

Will Boys Be Boys? examines the nature of adolescent masculinity in art from the past five years. The exhibition brings together recent paintings, photographs, sculptures, installations and video works by 20 artists, including Larry Clark, Tim Gardner, Anthony Goicolea, Nikki Lee, Tom Sachs and Collier Schorr, who investigate this pop culture phenomenon. Will Boys Be Boys? is the first museum exhibition to survey masculine adolescence in contemporary art. Will Boys Be Boys? Questioning Adolescent Masculinity in Contemporary Art is a traveling exhibition organized and circulated by Independent Curators International (iCI), New York. The exhibition was curated by Shamim M. Momin. The exhibition, tour, and brochure are made possible, in part, by The Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation.

  • 7:30 - 9:00 pm - Party and gallery preview

This show should be really strong. You may remember Tim Gardner and Anthony Goicolea from earlier shows at iMOCA. The IMA has had a couple of great Nikki Lee's on view since the contemporary galleries reopened. And I'm hearing rumors of fuseball and PBR!!!

Screening: Projected at Radio Radio sponsored by iMOCA

The Happiness of the Katakuris- Directed by Takashi Miike, currently one of Japan's most prolific horror film directors, this film is about the Katakuri family who are running a guest house. Mysteriously, their guests start dieing and they try to hide this fact by burying the bodies. This strange film from Mike is one of those rare, comical, musical, horror films. Think Shallow Grave with a touch of The Sound of Music. Runtime: 113 Minutes.

Doors at 7:00, film at 8:00. Only $3.
