    Bosco's process is rich and complex in texture very much like his own engaging personality. Join Lilly and Bosco and only 14 other guests for an intimate evening to tour his studio space, learn about his process over drinks, and finish at a BBQ dinner in Red Hook.

    Dinner to follow at Hometown BBQ, a Red Hook must that opened in August with a fantastic menu by pit master Billy Durney.

    Ticket includes:

    • studio tour led by the curator in discussion with Bosco
    • beverages, including Pommery champagne
    • full seated dinner at Hometown BBQ

      About the artist

      Bosco Sodi

      Bosco Sodi (b. 1970, Mexico City) is known for his richly textured, vividly colored large-scale paintings. Sodi has discovered an emotive power within the essential crudeness of the materials that he uses to execute his paintings. Focusing on material exploration, the creative gesture, and the spiritual connection between the artist and his work, Sodi seeks to transcend conceptual barriers. Sodi leaves many of his paintings untitled, with the intention of removing any predisposition or connection beyond the work’s immediate existence.

      The work itself becomes a memory and a relic symbolic of the artist’s conversation with the raw material that brought the painting into creation. Sodi’s influences range from l’art informel, looking to artists such as Antoni Tàpies and Jean Dubuffet, to master colorists such as Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, and the bright hues of his native heritage.

      Bosco Sodi is represented by the Pace Gallery. View Bosco's Website

      What a wonderful night! bosco's studio and artwork were both incredibly stunning. lily wei couldn't have been better host — she was so great at facilitating discussion, asking questions, and welcoming guests. the dinner afterward was a perfect addition as it led to more conversation — both in-depth discussions about art and casual chat about our own personal lives and experiences. another perfect evening all around.

      Brilliant experience. personal, comfortable, creatively and intellectually stimulating. great event, better than going to an opening.
