Thursday, Thursday, Friday

Three things coming up later this week in NYC:

Events for Thursday January 8–Jan 13, 2015

Funny, the last time I posted about events here I mentioned how infrequently I post about events here. At least this time it’s not about Open Studios. With that out of the way, there are five exhibitions and a record release that I want to point out:

Events for May 23–June 3, 2012

Looks like the last time I posted events here was in 2010, just before Bushwick Open Studios. Well it’s that time of year again!

  • We Are All Anonymous, Tonight May 23rd, 7pm at Triple Canopy, 155 Freeman Street, Brooklyn, NY (sadly I won’t be able to make this, but it sounds awesome)
  • Flux Death Match: The New Aesthetic, Wednesday May 30th, 8pm at Flux Factory, 39-31 29th Street, Long Island City
  • Bushwick Open Studios 2012 with my Future Archaeology pals, June 1st and 2nd from 12–7pm. 1381 Myrtle Ave Apt 4C (entrance on Himrod St), near the Knickerbocker M train stop. I’ll be showing some of my recent photography work as well as Occupy.here.

Events for June 5-6, 2010

This weekend is going to be busy! I’m participating in Bushwick Open Studios (with two shows!) and I’m also teaching a session at ITP Camp.

Events for March 12 and 13, 2010

Events for March 5-7 2010

In addition to the other things I mentioned earlier there is also this:

Update: I had the wrong day for IgniteNYC. It’s tomorrow night!

Events for March 1-7 2010

  • Tonight I’ll be going to the final workshop at Trade School. The topic being the future of the school itself:

    As people with creative projects, we understand the value of creative labor regardless of its market value. Why don’t we share our resources? What happens when we decide how much our work is worth to each other? Let’s trade our skills, spaces, and objects.

    It says there aren’t any seats available, but I’m going to swing by anyway. Starts at 7pm.

  • On Thursday Mushon and Michael are giving a talk and launching their book at Eyebeam. I completely forgot about this when I agreed to be a contestant on geek Jeopardy.

  • Friday through Sunday there’s the Social Media Art Camp (or “SMartCAMP”) conference that I’ll be attending.

Events for February 24-28, 2010

In no particular order:

Trade School workshops this week

Ellie is co-teaching a class at Trade School tomorrow night called Drawing for Pleasure and Relaxation. My (non-keyboard) hand coordination is kind of pathetic and I’d like some practice. It is full, unfortunately, but if you’re really into the idea it’d probably be fine to just show up.

Another one I’ll be going to on Thursday is Art Work: A Discussion about Art, Labor, and Economics, which has a companion newspaper edition and website. There are 3 seats left as of right now.

Also, in case you missed it, there’s a free lecture tonight by CLUI‘s Matthew Coolidge out at Pratt (although, not on the main campus).

Events for February 19-21, 2010

I’m kind of annoyed I missed the sold out Will Wright lecture last night. I had tickets and just totally forgot about it. But there’s a lot happening this weekend in my little sphere of interest, so maybe it’s good that I conserved some “going out energy.”

Friday, February 19

Saturday, February 20

Sunday, February 21

And of course there are a few workshops with space left at Trade School including “Caviar: Demystified,” “Collecting amidst disaster” and “Accidental Pornographies: Developing Underground Health Magazines and Stealth Distribution Models.”

Matthew Coolidge speaking at Pratt

I’m not seeing this posted on Pratt’s website or at the CLUI or at Bomb, so I’ll just copy + paste the email announcement here.
