ASI’s new exhibit, Imagine: Surreal Photography by Erik Johansson, highlights the Swedish photographer’s lens of magical realism—for its first look, the Institute has planned an evening of multi-media sensory diversions. Activities includes a Q&A with Johansson and Twincy’s sparky improv emcee Tane Danger, Lupulin Brewing Co beer samples and VR test runs, plus live music, themed food and drink and a selfie station (Johansson has a sublimely haunting Instagram, so in this case social media is encouraged as an art form). Friday, January 25th, 7-10 PM. $20 members/$15 non-members.Isabelle Wattenberg
