OX-OP Art/Music/Film Festival 09

The following is taken directly from the SooVac website. Yeah this is long – but it sounded so damn interesting that the entire thing had to be included (schedule @ the bottom):

On October 22nd through 25th, SooVAC will host a conceptual tour de force seldom seen outside the two coasts.

SooVAC explodes into its neighboring space for this extravaganza. The main gallery will feature a major retrospective of two hometown Minneapolis heroes of the international flatstock design and printing world: Burlesque of North America and Aesthetic Apparatus.

NO ADVANCE TICKETS-Tickets available at the door each night.

The side gallery will present a bizarre opening of local artist and alternative music mogul, HAZE XXL. A multi-media onslaught, the exhibition consists of 100 individually hand-made art CD sleeves, each containing original art and individual Polaroids, along with HAZE XXL created objects d’art featured in numerous national shows including the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. The show marks the first and only release of the Halo Of Flies/Gay Witch Abortion collaboration album. Just 100 CD’s produced, and that’s it forevermore but not surprising coming from the former head of Amphetamine Reptile Records who initiated his label by originating the whole “limited edition thing in music” back in the 1980′s.

Each night of the four-day event, performance art takes on a literal meaning with live music sequestered in yet another gallery within the gallery. The musicians will be performing behind large screened windows facing the main gallery, harshly backlit so that the audience sees only silhouetted shadows and movement. Four security cameras inside the room will broadcast those performances live onto screens in the main gallery, playing with perceptions of time and space and lessening even further our distinctions between reality and the alternate broadcast reality which is far to often blurred.

The Opening Event will also offer an additional layer of altered perception, featuring the short films of renowned artist Chris Mars. Primarily known for his deeply surreal oil and pastel images, he has taken to animationand film with all the intensity and incredible detail of his oil paintings.

radiohead + nin + lollapalooza (scam)

ok, so it’s not official yet but greg kot (chicago tribune) broke the news awhile ago that this is the case..

the event is august 1-3 and tickets are going to run $200/$300 (or more depending on when you buy them -check out the brilliant/evil ticket fare scheme they’ve come up with.. basically they will keep raising the ticket price indefinitely – or rather until they reach the limits of what people will pay – genius but still evil) + airfare + 3 nights hotel in dt chicago

if you’re not up for it – nin will be playing in minneapolis august 2nd (the night before they play lollapalooza)
