Try making sense of that headline without a key. It refers to Xiaoshi Vivian Vivian Qin’s panel discussion at the Queens Museum this Sunday, in which she invites a panel of experts to look back on our current time from the point of view of a person who found an iPhone 100 years in the future.

As per usual, there’s lots to see and do this week. Monday kicks off with a dinner and panel discussion organized by William Powhida and Jennifer Dalton on affordable housing in an luxury apartment. That’s tonight, and tickets are sold out, but hope springs eternal. RSVP now and see what comes of it.

Tuesday, at Light Industry, we’ll all have the opportunity to view John Berger’s Ways of Seeing on color shifted 16 mm film. For reference, I’ve posted the first video of his four part series, which is in perfect condition.  Now you can compare and contrast!

Saturday, we host the AFC Workshops: 21st Century Survival for Artists. Sign up now! And finally, we’re excited to see all the MFA graduate shows that will open this week—namely those by Cornell, Hunter, and ICP-Bard. Those of us who want to stay current need to attend these events. We gotta keep up with the kids!
