Every week, BR&S picks out a series of gallery events, screenings, exhibitions, performances. Here are our choices for you to go & see this week:
Thursday 9 - Sunday 19 May
Sunday May 12
Museum of Science, Charles Hayden Planetarium, 1 Science Park, Boston
A Nex Cosmic Mix: Now in 5D! (set 2)
Featuring HEXbeam by Vela Phelan, LOOSE by D’hana Perry, BATHAUS, Bobby Andres and a video transmission with Yassy Goldie. Through the combination of live sound and moving image, these artists skillfully execute contemporary techniques of appropriation such as sampling, cutting and editing. Loosely inspired by La Raza Cósmica (1925), an essay written by Mexican philosopher José Vasconcelos, along with contemporary theoretical models that have co-opted the term ‘remix’ as a way to study and describe culture and an interest in the 5th Dimension, Cavallo sought out live artists whose work celebrates and challenges our relationships with identity and the cosmos.
8:30-10pm / $15. Get tickets here.
