Neighborhood Cult’s final art event of 2017 is TABOO. On October 27th, enter into a neon-saturated world where Earthly sins of lust, greed, pride, vanity, sloth, and envy are one’s most irresistible attributes. Decadence is celebrated. Desire is indulged. Members of this society dress in disguise, becoming their own work of art. This conceptual art installation features a ritualistic setting, immersing its guests in botanical design, candles, crystals, and mysticism. This group exhibition explores dual interpretations of cultural taboos, natural impulses and the ingrained response one has to their own urges.

At their Girl Gaze event, we attended earlier this year, we got a good idea of how conceptual and incredible these events really are.

Become a work of art for TABOO, inspired by NYC 60’s era art parties and New Orleans voodoo masquerades. Awards will be given to Best Makeup, Most Creative and Kinkiest Costume.

Be gluttonous with New Orleans style beignets, coffee and savory treats provided by The Beignet Bus.

Be wary of tarot card readings by the mystical Elizabeth Ashley Johnson.

Artisan goods provided: caramel apples, sage bouquets, white prayer candles and more.
