Thursday, February 17: Play bingo, win art at Hallwalls

Celebrity bingo caller Ron Ehmke and the Real Dream Cabaret will direct the proceedings Thursday (Feb. 17) at Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center in Babeville at Asbury Hall. That’s right, it’s church bingo—only it’s a benefit for Hallwalls, so the winners take home genuine works of art and booze is available at the bar. Bingo boards are $5 apiece. Doors open at 7:30pm, and the games begin at 8pm.

    In response to the terrible failure of MoMa’s ticket sales for the Kraftwerk retrospective, galeriesNFS is organizing a mirror event. This series will include music that is excluded from the MoMa show, notably the first three Kraftwerk albums and Africa Bambaataa’s “Planet Rock.” Planet Rock is included, not to suggest that it is a work of Kraftwerk, rather that the remixing, sampling, and reinterpretation of Kraftwerks sounds/music by other artists was and continues to be as important as the original records. 

    In-deference to Kraftwerk and MoMa, this series invites artists/musicians to interpret the albums. While there is one original member of Kraftwerk performing at MoMa – there will be none in the galeriesNFS series. Rather, the aim of this exhibition is more interested in the feel and circumstance of community and experimentation.
