Renwick Gallery - 45 Renwick Street New York, NY

Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen present a musical performance at the Renwick Gallery tonight at 9pm "with a variation of genres electronica, punk, rock and hiphop with her own lyrics and like the ever changing Mis United her costumes changes for each new music piece." Renwick Gallery just took down an exhibition of documentary material accompanying Rasmussen's previous performance project there, A Void; a set of creative reenactments of historical performance art peices originating in date form 1958 onwards. James Wagner has written on Rasmussen's previous work here.

We will be posting some recommended events during the art fairs, so I'll start with a couple that involve art bloggers:

Bloggers and Their Impact on the Art World
Sunday, March 30th, 11:00 AM
Red Dot
Park South Hotel
122 E. 28th Street, bet. Park & Lex

There's now more art coverage in the blogosphere than in conventional publications. Do we handle this responsibility with conventional journalistic standards or something that's faster and looser as befits an instantaneous medium? How do we manage the formidable network that has developed around and because of us? Where do we go from here?


Joanne Mattera will moderate.

See the Red Dot website for additional panels.
