Culture Wars Returns This Wednesday

After a well-attended pilot event in January—with over 80 participants spread across 18 teams and music provided by Mary Heilmann—Art21 is returning to host a second installment of Culture Wars: A Night of Trivia with Art21 in collaboration with the 92YTribeca this Wednesday, March 24, 2010, at the 92YTribeca in New York City.

The bar opens at 6:00 p.m. and the event begins at 6:30 p.m.

This trivia event is inspired by contemporary art and the culture of our time. In the spirit of Art21’s mission to increase knowledge of contemporary art and in combination with the social traditions of game night and happy hour, this multimedia event invites you to test your knowledge of current art, film, music and online cultural phenomena. All are invited to form a team of colleagues, friends, and frienemies—or come solo and join a team on the spot to meet other art appreciators/lovers/aficionados—and compete for cultural greatness…or maybe just a prize.

Prizes are generously provided by 20×200 and the Phaidon Store in SoHo.

Follow the action on Twitter (#culturewars) leading into the Wednesday-night event.

Already have a team assembled? Share your clever team names in the comments below, on Twitter (use hashtag #culturewars), or on the Facebook event Wall.

Teams may consist of 2 to 5 people. This is not a ticketed event; however, there will be a cost of $5 per team, payable at the bar, to participate. For more information, please visit the 92YTribeca event page.
