Before and after the Horizon: Anishinaabe Artists of the Great Lakes

Be one of the first to see the new exhibit at the National Museum of the American Indian in Bowling Green. This is the first extensive exhibit that aggregates native artists from the Great Lakes region, an area inhabited by natives for over 10,000 years. The show will juxtapose contemporary art, “historic, ancestral objects,” and communal experiences and stories from peoples of the Chippewa, Ottawa and Potawatomi nations. The exhibit will have six conceptual parts: place, cosmos, church, contested space, cottager colonialism and many worlds. Take the chance to learn part of America’s ancient history from people whose lineages date back to when terrain was blooming from glacial remnants of the Ice Age, long before European colonizers came to settle. It’s a perspective that’s often hidden or difficult to find.

Fringe NYC The New York International Fringe Festival

Each year Fringe Festival descends upon New York with a plethora of shows and theatre performances popping up across the city. Dubbed the “largest multi-arts festival in North America,” Fringe is hosting 1200 performances, 200 shows in 20 different venues this year alone. The amount and diversity of performances can be overwhelming, but FringeNYC has prepared for the theatre surplus with a newbie guide for that issue alone. There’s also FringeNYTeasers that help facilitate discovery of shows by providing a collection of 5-minute previews of around 10 shows. This Friday and Saturday, August 16th and 17th, at Fringe Central from 6 to 7:30pm you can catch a FringeNYTeaser and hopefully go catch a show that grabs your interest. In addition, Wednesday August 14th at 8:45pm, Infallibility, a play written by Remezcla’s own Matt Barbot will have it’s debut at the Robert Moss theatre @ 440 Studios (Venue #16.) Visit www.fringenyc.org for a complete list of performances.

Labyrinthitis by Jacob Kirkegaard

An aural affair will take place this Friday at Eyebeam’s main gallery in Chelsea. Danish artist Jacob Kirkegaard has created a “third tone” using inspiration from medical technology that tests for deafness in newborns. Targeting the inner ear as a site for tonal formation, Kirkegaard has composed a sensorial experience that is a physiological and ephemeral experience. The performance is part of Eyebeam’s Rec. Play., a programming series that explores sound art. The one time performance is this Friday, August 16th from 7-8pm.
