Grouper, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, Bitchin Bajas, Suicideyear, and some-more featured during New Myths on Mar 13-15 in Marfa, Texas
What do Grouper, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, minimalist artist Donald Judd, and straight-up aliens from outward space all have in common? If we guessed, “They all have in a past or will in a destiny celebration in Marfa, Texas,” afterwards you, my crony substantially don’t even need to review this news post and are hereby excused. The rest of you, though, we should hang around, we competence learn a thing or dual about a New Myths informative module going down in Marfa, Texas. Like, for instance that it’s curated by Mexican Summer and co-presented with Ballroom Marfa. I’ll gamble we didn’t even know that until only now when we schooled it. In a subsequent paragraph, we will use numbers and letters to learn we even more.
New Myths is designed for Mar 13-15, and it’ll underline performances from a likes of Steve Gunn, Bitchin Bajas, Weyes Blood, Thug Entrancer, Suicideyear, and more. Beyond that, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma will emanate a “sound bath,” Liz Harris (a.k.a. Grouper) will benefaction a “semi-permanent outward mural” (though it looks like she won’t be behaving song [update: she will be! on Saturday!), there’ll be a live designation of Gregg Kowalsky’s “Tape Chants,” and several brief film screenings. Dev Hynes and Connan Mockasin will also post adult in a recording residency that will outcome in a singular 12-inch documenting a collaboration. Basically, there’s a lot of things going on all during once while everybody keeps on not articulate about a very genuine aliens chilling only outward city limits. It’s like it’s a swindling or something.
Anyway, this is a second year for a eventuality that kicked off final year, and if you’d like to see it occur more, and some-more expansively, cruise reaching your bony arm low into a eventuality organizers’ common pockets and depositing some income there for tickets to Saturday (Friday and Sunday are both free). There’s even a special “weekend bundle” cost that gets we opening all weekend in further to a duplicate of that singular 12-inch we was articulate about adult top, a receptacle bag, and a biography featuring work from both some of a performers and a accumulation of Marfa-based artists. Grip them via Mexican Summer, and sight a full events outline below.
