With a desire to engage public audiences in creating new forms of live and media art that blend aspects of art-world-style performance, guest curators and hosts for the evening - Teddy Behr (David Rohn) and Adora (Danilo de la Torre) will provide erudite commentary on the fashion choices, questionable results and all manner of madness surrounding the Oscar Night events. Live broadcasts from the red carpet and inside the Kodak theatre will be shown in the courtyard as well as live feed from our own red carpet staged on the historic main drive of the Estate.
