"Both artists share a dark, sensuous fascination with ruins and Gothic cathedrals as metaphors for the drama of humanity," according to the Barnes.

At the soiree, attendees can check out the art, get out on the dance floor, snack on light fare and drink. As for what to wear, guests are expected to dress for the theme.

So, rock some dark lipstick. Pile on layers of black on black on black.

Admission to the event is $35. For members, the price is $15.
