Marina Abramović is having a retrospective here at MoMA. It’s the first time a performance artist has had such a show, which will include reenactments of her pieces by other performers. The main event is a new endurance piece:
Marina Abramović will perform in the Atrium at MoMA throughout the
duration of the exhibition, starting before the Museum opens each day
and continuing until after it closes.
The New Yorker has an article (subscriber-only) on the exhibition that I haven’t read yet. There’s also a podcast interview with Judith Thurman, who wrote the article, that provides some useful context.
This is required reading as far as I’m concerned. You may want to load up the print version to avoid clicking through each of the seven pages.
A “real-time historical fiction” web comic about contemporary life in Iran. The NY Times writes:
The Web comic, which will be published in book form next year, is written by Amir, a human rights activist, and illustrated by Khalil. First Second Books is keeping their last names confidential to protect their safety. The comic will be updated Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and will be published simultaneously in English, Farsi, Arabic, French, Italian, Spanish and Dutch.

There’s a lot going on in these three screenshots. It’s not surprising that the creator of Meetup might know how to use this thing.
