This Weekend in Beacon

Here is a last minute posting of some art related goings on this weekend.

Today at 1pm, Dia:Beacon has another gallery talk. Today's talk is given by Dia curator Lynne Cook, and she will be discusssing the work of Agnes Martin.

Also this weekend, Dia is kicking of a series of summer film screenings. The series, curated by Douglas Crimp is titled, Lives of Performers: Art, Film, Performance around 1970. This week's presentation will feature work by Andy Warhol and Shirley Clarke.
Films will be screened every Saturday and Sunday at 2pm through Labor Day Weekend. A complete film schedule can be found here

Later on tonight, the benefit for Flying Swine continues with musical performances at Howland Cultural Center by Jennifer Clapp and Gwen Laster.
Tickets for tonight's performance are $25, and seating is limited. For more info, please call 845.230.7010

We attended last night's Taste of Beacon, portion of the Swine benefit. Selected scenes were presented last night, including two scenes from Deborah Breevort's play "Signs of Life" which will be presented in its entirety latter this fall in Beacon by Flying Swine. I generally don't get all twittery on theater, but this production is certainly something to look forward to. The two actors (I need to ) were stunning and incredibly natural as a married couple. The response to this short performance was resounding. I'll of course post info on the upcoming performances as they happen. You'll not want to miss this.

Enough of the theater review. I've been backlogged lately, but this weekend, I will be posting images ov events from the past month, and there are some upcoming calls for artists and such that I'll be posting as well.
