10 Things You Have to Do This Weekend

Thu 11/14
‘New Works 13.3’

Micol Assael – Chizhevsky’s Lessons from xxx on Vimeo.

Handpicked by Paola Morsiani, director of the Neuberger Museum of Art in Purchase, N.Y., Micol Assaël (Rome), Ivor Shearer (Houston) and Erin Shirreff (New York) represent the final chapter in Artpace’s 2013 International Artist-In-Residence cycle. While past projects can offer clues about what to expect, the program’s goal is to “give artists a space in which to imagine new ways to work.” In 2007, Assaël shocked the art world with an installation named after a Russian scientist who explored correlations between solar activity and historical upheavals. Consisting of a cascade generator, a transformer and suspended copper plates, her Chizhevsky Lessons filled high-profile spaces with negatively charged ions and pumped visitors full of static electricity. Based on Paul Auster’s dystopian novel In the Country of Last Things, Shearer’s experimental film Last Things is set in a post-Katrina New Orleans shut off from the rest of the country by the government. Trained as a sculptor but working in a range of media, Shirreff has drawn inspiration from celestial matter, James Turrell’s Roden Crater and beyond. Billed as an “ephemeral digital shadow,” her application Shadow, Glare functions as a “visual intervention” that’s available as a free download. Free, 6-9pm (artist dialogue begins at 7pm) Thursday, Artpace, 445 N Main, (210) 212-4900, artpace.org. —Bryan Rindfuss

    Please, please, for the love of GAWD find a better way to set these up for reading online. Having to load an entirely new weebpage for each item on the list is awful! If you don’t have a good slideshow application, then please just put these all on the same page! Thank you. :)
