‘In Ply’ at the Arts Center

The Arts Center in Troy has an exciting exhibit in the works:

A band of artists converging on a single mission to create an environment that can be used without regard to a specific means of interaction outside of community use and art. Over fifty artists create work within the narrative of skate culture including skate decks, street art, skate photography, and carpentry. The exhibit will include a skate ramp built in house for public use.

The exhibit will run from Jan 22 to April 5 with an opening reception on February 28 from 6-8pm.

Learn more and RSVP on the Facebook event, and also be sure to check out their calendar of future exhibits.

Hieroglyphic Being at EMPAC: Ticket Giveaway

On Friday, Hieroglyphic Being will be performing at EMPAC. Hieroglyphic Being is known for his out of this world, experimental, house music.

From EMPAC’s event listing:

You find a vinyl record out in the desert, faded and with no markings. Upon returning home, you place it on the turntable and are enveloped by distorted, raw, rhythmic pulsations. The sound gives you a glimpse into another world, another way of existing. It works its way inside of you, and you begin to subtly move.

This is the sound of Hieroglyphic Being.

The kind folks at EMPAC have given me a pair of tickets to give away to a lucky KAB reader! You can enter the giveaway below. If you are not the contest type, tickets are currently on sale directly from EMPAC.

Also, the HoloLens demo and talk looks really interesting, and My Paradoxical Knives, Laure Prouvost’s new performance, and AFTER by Andrew Schneider all sound very interesting.
