Enjoy the newest Cincinnati Art Museum exhibition from the comfort of your living room during “Art After Dark at Home” 7-9 p.m. on Friday, March 26.

The exhibit, Future Retrieval: Close Parallel, “allows the new and unexpected to delight in dialogue with the historic,” according to CAM. During the digital version of the museum’s regular final Friday cocktail party, guests can enjoy a 360-degree, virtual view of the gallery space and some exclusive video premieres — including a cocktail tutorial from HomeMakers Bar and local music from Wavelette — via Facebook or YouTube.

Additionally, there will be behind-the-scenes interviews with artists Katie Parker and Guy Michael Davis, who both contributed their artistic skills to the exhibition.

Davis and Parker are former University of Cincinnati College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP) faculty members. Their studio collaboration is called “Future Retrieval.”

“The contemporary work of Future Retrieval…commingles with selections from the museum’s permanent collection,” says the CAM. “Traditional motifs are reinterpreted. The natural world creeps in, to fascinating effect, and familiar materials are reworked into surprising new forms.”

The exhibition will also be available to view in-person through Aug. 29. Registration is required to visit the museum.
