3. Digital Art Criticism Now at The Whitney

The Whitney Museum of American Art presents “New Ways To See: Digital Art Criticism Now” on Tuesday, November 29, 2016 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. The discussion will be held on floor three in the Susan and John Hess Family Theater.

Christiane Paul and Nora Khan—recipients of the Thoma Foundation’s 2016 Arts Writing Awards in Digital Art—discuss current issues in digital art with Ian Cheng and Clement Valla, two artists on whose work they have written. Paul, Khan, and the artists will talk about topics explored in their respective writings and projects, with a focus on the ways in which networked technologies and computation shape and place productive pressure on creative expression. They will also discuss challenges inherent in writing about digital art, and will address the ways in which both artists would like to see their work represented and analyzed in arts publications. Brian Droitcour, Associate Editor and Online Editor at Art in America will moderate the discussion. 

Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for members, students and seniors. The Whitney Museum is located at 99 Gansevoort St, New York, NY 10014.

5. “On The Road” at BAM

BAM presents the NY Premiere of “On The Road” from November 30 to December 3, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. at BAM Fisher.

Six decades after the bible of the Beat Generation was published, choreographer Zvi Gotheiner and his company set out to retrace Jack Kerouac’s most infamous route, tumbling west over the Rockies toward whatever revelations America’s roadways might yield today. The result is this work, with original music by composer Jukka Rintamäki, and kaleidoscopic video footage acquired along the way, courtesy of the artist Josh Higgason. Filtering the desire of the Beats through the vantage of the present, “On the Road” is a danced meditation on youth, freedom, and the call of the open road. Part of the 2016 New Wave Festival.

Tickets are $25. The show run time is approximately 60 minutes. BAM Fisher is located at 321 Ashland Pl, Brooklyn, NY 11217.
