The Dada Ball and Bash
The Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis hosted the sixth edition of its popular Dada Ball & Bash. This was Contemporary Art Museums’ biennial “non-gala” fundraising celebration. Inspired by the Dadaists of the early 20th century, this legacy event celebrated the unexpected, ironic, and playful. The 2015 Dada Ball & Bash took place at the Koken Art Factory, in Fox Park, and featured avant-garde cuisine by world-renowned chef and food futurist Homaro Cantu, a boxing ring as stage, and surprise entertainment throughout the night. Pioneering Dadaist Marcel Duchamp (1887–1968) served as honorary chair. All proceeds benefit CAM’s groundbreaking exhibitions and education programs.
