Abraham Cruzvillegas discusses architectural influences, David Brooks and Mark Dion argue species virtuosity, and more in this week’s roundup.

  • Abraham Cruzvillegas will speak at The New School (New York, NY) tomorrow as part of the Public Art Fund Talks. The artist will focus on his ten-year body of work Autoconstrucción (recently highlighted in an ART21 video preview), which “he associates with an improvised approach to domestic architecture that is deeply informed by the development of his childhood neighborhood.” The program begins at 6:30pm. Admission is $10; free for students, staff, faculty, and alumni.
  • Laurie Anderson will be at Sonoma State University’s Green Music Center (Rohnert Park, CA) on October 25. Anderson will perform Language of the Future, “a witty and poignant collection of songs and stories about contemporary culture, crossing the border between the reality of performance and the elusive dream world suggested by technology and information.” Purchase tickets online.
  • David Brooks has invited Mark Dion to join him in a Slide Slam at the University of Texas at Austin on November 3. The artists will “argue the virtuosity of one species over another, comparing research and past work to illustrate the exuberance of animate life hovering atop the lifeless geological.” The event is free and open to the public.
