Purchase Tickets

Join us for PEM’s annual Gala as we celebrate the future of the creative process. Dining, dancing and cocktails are just the beginning. Immersive experiences and entertainment curated by artists and artistic minds will explore creativity and its many forms of expression. It’s more than a party; it’s an experience. Celebrate, create, be transported and transformed.

Experiences

Creative experience rooms will feature opportunities to interact with guests and artists with activities designed to engage the senses. See descriptions below.

Matthew Aucoin

Matthew Aucoin will compose new work in real time. Guests become part of the process by influencing the style of his composition. Collaborators Kier GoGwilt and Nick Pope will simultaneously react to his composition through additional music and visual art.

Aucoin is PEM's first composer-in-residence and an assistant conductor at the Metropolitan Opera in New York.

Janice Wang

Utilizing taste, touch, sound, sight and smell, Janice Wang will explore the ways we interact with food and with each other through culinary experience. Wang is interested in cognitive psychology in the dining room.

She is an MIT Media Lab researcher as part of Kevin Slavin's Playful Systems group.

Cuisine

Future-themed hors d'oeuvres and small plates, both sweet and savory, will be passed throughout the evening to create a unique dinner-by-the-bite culinary experience.
