Performance Happenings

Just before I devour too much ham and potatoes in celebration of Easter I had to share some performances for the week ahead.

26 April at 6PM: Ronnie Bass and Gandalf Gavan @ Wallach Art Gallery (116th St. and Broadway NY NY) FREE

Bass and Gavan will perform at the opening of the Wallach Art Gallery’s exhibition Common Love, Aesthetics of Becoming – which explores love within a contemporary sociopolitical discourse. The works included in Common Love explore love as a way to participate in the production of a contemporary world where physical, cultural, and virtual space is shared. Shed of its conventional packaging, the transformative power of love can be identified in the artists’ work.

27 April at 8:30PM: Kurt Ralske @ Roulette (20 Greene Street NY NY) FREE

Multimedia artist Kurt Ralske presents “Rediscovering German Futurist Cinema”, an combination of video, live audio-visual performance, and lecture/demonstration involving his research into the experimental films of Fritz Lang and F.W. Murnau. With the rediscovery of this little-known genre, 1920s Berlin moves forwards and backwards in time simultaneously.

28 April at 8:30PM: Matthew Ostrowski @ Roulette (20 Greene Street NY NY) FREE

Matthew Ostrowski, a pioneer in live electronic music, will be performing two works with the collaboration of inanimate systems: “atopia:levigation and apophenia”, an audio-visual work for live webcrawler, and “Three (out of four) States of Matter”, for a common household experience and live processing.

30 April at 3PM – 5PM: Viva Ruiz “We have come to take your jobs” @ PS1 (22-25 Jackson Ave. Long Island City NY)

Viva Ruiz presents a multimedia afternoon described as a “pro-immigration invocation sensation”. Ruiz will transform MoMA PS1 into a Latin social club with tropical food, drinks, reggaeton and other forms of dance music. Saturday Sessions is a program of events designed to introduce wide-ranging directions in performance. The experimental program is structured around collaboration and focuses on engaging MoMA PS1 visitors in a unique, two-hour-long experience. Each session features a different host and will occur every other Saturday of the month in the Third Floor Main Gallery.
