For the next few Mondays, we're going to be test-running a weekly feature that spotlights some tantalizing looking events from Rhizome Announce, in New York and around the world. More in-depth event listings, as well as open calls and job listings, are always available here.

 


Hackney, London, UK

Thursday, May 2: Pyramid Schemes | A Collaborative Project

The White Building

48 contemporary artists and writers each submit short texts that describe and visually depict architectural spaces, which are collected in a book and projected as a "panoramic cityscape." Referencing both ASCII art and Apollinaire, this event is going to tie in nicely with part two of Tom McCormack's series Emoji, Emoticon, Text, out tomorrow. 


Troy, NY

Thursday, May 2: The Films of Laurie Anderson with Special Guest Pauline Oliveros

EMPAC Concert Hall

This. "The 8PM presentation will be capped off with a screening of a silent film to which Anderson and Pauline Oliveros play together." 


New York, NY

Friday, May 3 / Saturday, May 4: Essential Repertoire: John Cage & Lejaren Hiller, HPSCHD (pictured)

Eyebeam

Because a performance of John Cage's first foray into computer-based work should be a must-see for frequenters of this site. Because it is described as a "mass media orgy." As with any orgy, make sure to bring your smartphone. #massmediaorgy


New York, NY

Saturday, May 4: Perambulant

Rivington St., between Bowery and Christie

This entry in the New Museum's IDEAS CITY festival brings together live performances and workshops exploring the theme of the body in urban space. It includes a Butoh-inspired street performance of the children's book Madeline.
