After an all-nighter spent closing our Secret Issue, we’re ready for the weekend. Luckily for us, this weekend is all about Vice and Intel’s “Creators Project.”
The international cultural collaboration (and our soon-to-be respite) has already made waves in Paris, Sao Paolo, Bejing, and Seoul, and, thankfully, DUMBO is the latest site for the teched-out, multimedia jamboree. Here’s what we’ll be checking out:
On Saturday, pre-Raphaelite pop songstress Florence Welch performs with her Machine, on the heels of their latest album, “Ceremonials” (set for release on All Hallows Eve). Synth-pop composer, Ariel Pink collaborator, and BULLETT fave John Maus, sings from his latest We Must Become The Pitiless Censors Of Ourselves.
We’re also excited to check out the the latest installation from the UK art collective UVA, whose non-tactile sculptures, installations, and experiences blend light and sound with interactivity. UVA’s most recent offering is a colossal cube that began as a stage at Coachella and then morphed into a sculpture in Bejing and Seoul, and, now, DUMBO.
And most importantly? A much anticipated opera by a woman who only needs one initial, Karen O. We’ve been waiting for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ front woman’s to pull something wild out of that ridiculous headdress for years, and now she’s got a weeklong run at the offbeat, eclectic venue, St. Ann’s Warehouse.
And if you’re not tired yet, there’s films! You may have OD’d on the silver screen after two weeks of NYFF, but if you’re still hungry for more, there will be two full days of screenings, including the Spike Jonze/Arcade Fire collaboration Scenes from the Suburbs, as well as Chinese punk icon Peng Lei’s latest project Future Future.
The best part of all, every last bit of this creative fete is FREE (Apart from “Stop the Virgens”)— Just RSVP here.
