K2 Friday Night
Free Admission, DJ, Cocktails, and Programs
6:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Cocktails, art, and music make a heady mix during K2 Friday Nights, where admission is free every Friday from 6:00 to 10:00 PM. Café Serai becomes the K2 Lounge, offering a special drinks menu to accompany the evening’s DJ, Ushka. Explore all the galleries, dive deeper with an exhibition tour at 7:15 PM, and kick off your weekend with the Rubin.
About the DJ
Ushka is a Sri Lankan–born, Brooklyn-based DJ traversing genres across electronic club and bass music. She is one half of iBomba, a Brooklyn-based duo and party that has thrown immigrant- and people-of-color-centered parties for the last five years. She DJs from the perspective of a dancer, blending a wide range of club music from soca to dancehall, hip-hop to South Asian rhythms, Baltimore/Jersey club to baile funk, vogue cuts to kuduro, azonto to afrobeat, and more. When she isn’t crafting dancefloor spaces, Ushka is a political and cultural organizer.
