Origin Magazine releases their newest issue at a Summer Party at the Rubin Museum. The new issue features a series of interviews and dialogs with people as diverse as the legendary Paul Gabriel to urban Eco-activist Marjora Carter.

The event will start with a dialog in the galleries on the fourth floor at 7:15 PM between National Geographic‘s Mary Anne Potts and Paul Miller (aka DJ Spooky) about the National Geographic Explorer of the Year program and an over view of some of the projects that National Geographic is getting ready to present.

Join us for a special set by DJ Spooky in the K2 Lounge after and sample some of the Himalayan-inspired cocktails at the cash bar.

Presented with Origin Magazine

Still at the Rubin at 9:30 PM? Round out the night with your drink in hand for the CabaretCinema screening of Brian De Palma’s Phantom of the Paradise.
