Here with your weekly forecast. And we’re talking more than just weather. Although that looks good too. This week: Laurie Anderson performs Delusion at BAM, Elliott Sharp does Marclay, group show NEO-VITRUVIAN: The Body Now opens, Tom Zé: Liberted Astronaut screens at 92yTribeca, Gregory Crewdson at Gagosian, Gysin’s Ghost: Poetry Marathon and more!
This week brings you the near-scientific spectacles of Swiss artist Roman Singer, an evening of theatrical previews with Mr. Albee, Fredric Tuten at the Strand, Barbara Hammer-time, art by Cordy Ryman, Alejandro Cesarco, a performance by Jana Leo, and a journey to the border regions betwixt apocalypse and epiphany (we’re talking LA, people). Follow us!
Last week’s hurricane may have passed us over, but this week promises a serious cultural deluge. This week’s BOMB Alert is a real category five, with a Tao Lin reading; Pipilotti Rist, Jackie Saccoccio, and Santiago Sierra openings; and the chance to schmooze with BOMB editors and other literati at LitCrawl and the Brooklyn Book Festival!
As my fortune cookie says, while things get slower, they get bigger as well. As the leaves turn and the playoff race heats up, heavy-hitters Jim Jarmusch, Michael Rother, Mike Figgis, Jonathan Franzen and Lydia Davis step up to the plate. But these Boys of Summer better watch out below: BOMB All Stars Sarah Ruhl, Kalup Linzy and Jafar Pahani are creeping up the standings. Unmix these metaphors (and more!) in this week’s BOMB Alert…
The end of summer means a sleepy art world, but a very much awake and thrashing music world. Heck, even with the free outdoor shows winding down there’s still plenty of musical summer fun to be had: the new Sufjan Stevens EP dropped, DJ / Rupture is playing at the Whitney, and Antony just released a new video. Read on for more end-of-summer fun with BOMB alums.
This week brings music by Marc Ribot and Meshell Ndegeocello, readings by Justin Taylor and Mona Simpson, and Heavy Traffic courtesy of Ralph Bakshi . Also, would-be INTERNS come Market, Develop and Fundraise with us! MORE
