Fête at Fifteen
Saturday, October 20th
7:00PM - 10:00PM
@ Mandarin Plaza
970 N. Broadway Ave. 

Fête At Fifteen is the second annual fundraiser for Materials & Applications, celebrating fifteen years of experimentation, collaboration, and architectural engagement! 

Celebrate in and out of your formal wear as you soak in Michael Parker’s Steam Egg sculpture, a fully functional steam room that also moonlights as the evening's disco ball. The sculpture is an immersive, participatory experience for anyone who wants to take the evening to another level of relaxation — what's more Californian than hot tubbing at a party? 

What’s Happening?

Arrive in Style
Dress to impress in cocktail attire (sequins and sparkles encouraged) but don't forget your bathing suit! Michael Parker's experiential sculpture Steam Egg will be on all night. Changing rooms and towels provided!

7:00pm: Dinner & Cocktails
Warm up to the dance floor with specialty Japanese cocktails by Kikori Whiskey and Soto Sake, and enjoy savory fare by Full Moon & Pickles. Menu highlights: bulgolgi marinated pork chops, baked fish with yellow curry, and sesame noodle salad. 

8:15pm: Special Announcement
Join Jia Gu, Director of Materials & Applications  for a special announcement about M&A's 2019 programs, followed with a reflection by Mimi Zeiger, co-curator of the 2018 U.S. Pavilion. Then raise your paddles in support of Materials & Applications!

8:30PM: Let's Disco-Spa!
Warm up with a sip of sake, then slip into your bathing suit and take a soak in Michael Parker’s Steam Egg sculpture, a fully functional steam room that also moonlights as the evening's disco ball. (Changing rooms and towels provided.) Enjoy live DJ sets by our friends Dirty Dave and Dublab

10:00PM: Thank You!
Grab your thank you gift at the door filled with information about our upcoming programs for 2019 and luxurious gifts from our friends at Aesop!
