Come celebrate NYC Pride in a FREE event - "Daddy's Boy" by Michelanelo Alasa' opens June 25, 2015
DMAC invites you to celebrate NYC Pride with the opening of
Daddy's Boy from June 25 - June 27, 2015.
This event is free.
Daddy's Boy by Michelangelo Alasa', is a walk through, immersive art installation. A maze created with video, found objects and words. Patrons walk at their own pace through the House of Terror of his childhood into his magical "safe place". Within this sacred place Alasa' narrates the personal arc of his life journey from child hood sexual abuse through redemption. Touching, illuminating and filled with humor, the best survival tool.
Daddy's Boy is cathartic in nature and will make you confront your own deepest secrets, darkest desires, and biggest triumphs.
Join us for an opening reception on
Thursday June 25 at 8-10 PM.
Due to the adult nature of this exhibition it is not recommended to anyone under 18 years of age. This exhibition was inspired by the performance piece, Becoming Michelangelo: Confessions of a Cuban Sex Addict which just completed a three year run at DMAC.
