Daniel Green, Yukari Sakura, and Marilyn Wong in exhibit in memory of Prince at Minnesota Street Project. 

Organized by critic and curator Glen Helfand, After Pop Life is an exhibition and event series inspired by the late musical genius and cultural force of Prince, whose untimely passing earlier this year marked a moment of tremendous loss, but also appreciation of his gifts to culture. With works by more than thirty contemporary artists, the exhibition honors the prevasiveness of Prince's legacy and how his prodigious musical output and indelible personal style seem more alive than ever. Artworks by Daniel GreenYukari Sakura, and Marilyn Wong will activate two galleries in the Minnesota Street Project complex.

Saturday, September 17, 2016, 5 to 8 pm
5 pm stage reading of noted San Francisco writer Kevin Killian’s Poet’s Theater play, Life After Prince, written in 1993 and updated this year, which wittily follows a string of female Prince protégés to the unemployment office.
6 to 8 pm Reception

Closing Event
Saturday, October 1, 2016, 8 to 11 pm 
Closing event will feature "23 Positions in a One Night Stand," a BNNZA fashion performance organized by Bonanza in collaboration with Marco Garcia and Maria Capron. Inspired by Prince’s notorious 1991 MTV Music Awards performance of the song Gett Off, the show will feature Prince-inspired looks, fierce posturing and durational performances that will activate and accent a full-on dance party in the Minnesota Street Project Atrium.
