⊹ .·:*¨ The DARE-DARE TOUSKI ¨*:·. ⊹
It's with great joy and love that DARE-DARE invites you to its new fundraising party. TOUSKI is a biennial "art in a box" event that goes beyond the ordinary auction. Above all, it's a kitsch-themed party that revolves around the biggest potluck in DARE-DARE history!
This unique event has three components: a grand buffet, an auction of mystery works and a kitsch party!
A grand buffet
Ever dreamed of savoring an aspic? Good, because at TOUSKI, quaint dishes are more than welcome. Without limiting themselves to party sandwich loafs or mimosa eggs, the DARE-DARE team and members were invited to get creative with their fridge "touski" and materialize their signature recipes to prepare a memorable collective feast.
In honor of the famous demonstrations, 20 vintage Tupperware in a variety of shapes and colors will be auctioned off as "surprise boxes". In keeping with the concept, these will contain art "touski". By winning an auction, you could acquire edition leftovers, multiples, exclusive studio samples, public art mock-ups or performance residues. Katherine-Josée Gervais and Sébastien Goyette Cournoyer will act as the auctioneer duo, with their wild and contagious energy.
A kitsch party
Whether you've been a DARE-DARE member since the dawn of time, a newcomer or simply intrigued, you're warmly invited to join the party! For the occasion, DARE-DARE invites you to get out your kitschiest clothes, indulge in audacious pattern combinations and make your spraynet-fixed hairstyle fantasies come true. (It's also okay if you just prefer to dress in brown.) At the end of the evening, a themed playlist featuring hits from the 60s to today will get us dancing.
