The series is an electrifying social experience created with artists and key cultural groups in the city.

The Off Rack edition of Prime Time presents an evening focused on the intersection of fashion, style, and contemporary art. Through a night of music, fashion and dance, Off Rack explores what’s in vogue with a series of art activations and a selection of distinctive food and beverages.
