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.
TONIGHT at Barnes and Noble, 97 Warren Street, 7 PM, Tao Lin, author of Shopplifting from American Apparel and Eeeee Eee Eeee, will be reading from his forthcoming novel Richard Yates.
Rest up on the 9th because the weekend is sure to be nonstop, plus it’s Rosh Hashanah.
Be sure not to miss Pipilotti Rist‘s Heroes of Birth opening reception on September 10, 6–8 PM at Luhring Augustine Gallery. On view will be two installations and a triptych of a video piece. The installation in the gallery’s main space is sure to be stunning, so take a hint from her etherealness fashion weekers—Layer Mama Layers.
Get on the China Town Bus and head to Boston! September 10, Jackie Saccoccio of BOMBlog “What State Abstraction” fame will be showing with Jeffery Gibson in a show called The Shades opening 6–8 PM at Samsøn Projects, 450 Harris Avenue / 29 Thayer Street, Boston.
On Saturday, you may want to higher a driver as the cross currents really pick up with a jam packed evening. To kick things off, there will be several performances by Franklin Evans at P.S.1 at 5.00 PM. Admission is $10.00 which lets you into the shows as well as the Greater New York exhibition. The performances last 25 min, so you’ll have plenty of time to get to the City and drop by Gagosian Gallery for Dike Blair‘s Paintings and Sculptures opening reception on September 11 from 6–8 PM…Leaving just enough time for you to head on downtown to Katra for another session of BOMB-aoke! That’s right it’s LitCrawl time again, and you’ll have the chance to win a vintage issue of the magazine with the thumbs up from BOMB celebrity judges Rivka Galchen and Nick Flynn.
Things take an even more literary turn with the Brooklyn Book Festival on September 12 at 209 Joralemon Street, 10 AM–6PM.
Though, the real eye of the storm is at the heart of the New York Film Festival where you’ll find BOMB has a strong hold of three filmmakers with Mike Leigh‘s Another Year, Kelly Reichardt‘s Meek’s Cutoff, Carlos Reygadas‘s short film, ”This is My Kingdom” featured in the Revolución co-produced by Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna.
