We’re looking at a pretty light week for events coming out of Memorial Day weekend. The good news here is that while there maybe fewer openings and talks to attend there’s no shortage of quality. Start your week today by visiting the SVA Computer Art thesis show and leave time on Wednesday for a performance by M6 of Meredeth Monk compositions. Thursday we’ll be heading out to the Museum of Moving Image to check out their new GIF commissions and panel discussion and Friday we’re heading to 470 Vanderbilt for an all woman art show. Saturday Cary Hulbert will take a stab at predicting the future at Ortega y Gasset Projects and Sunday we’ve got a day of music by John Zorn at the Jewish Museum.

Long story short, for a light week, we’ve got plenty to do. We expect to see you around!

Notes follow in the order the performances occurred.
