Culture Shock

Art Overload

The city is abuzz with new art happenings—evidence that Albuquerque is a cultural epicenter teeming with talent. Two great shows opening this weekend are worthy of some attention. First, the South Broadway Cultural Center (1025 Broadway SE) presents Soul Expressions with works by the New Mexico African-American Artist Guild (more to come later this the month). The variety of styles and voices in Soul Expressions makes it a promising exhibit. The show is already on the walls, but join the artists for an opening reception on Friday, Jan. 11, from 6 to 8 p.m.

Kumail Nanjiani

Performance Preview

Not-So-Hollywood Life

Unpronounceable at the Revolutions International Theatre Festival

By

Kumail Nanjiani watched one Hollywood movie a day to prepare for college. Nanjiani's parents insisted from a young age he attend a university in the United States since his native Pakistan was such a turbulent country. And so the family VCR became his window into America.

Get into the Groove

This is Your Brain on Dance

By Clarke Condé

Great strides have been made in understanding the connection between dance and the brain since the mid-1980s when researcher Madonna Ciccone postulated that “you can dance for inspiration.” Get into the grooves (and folds) of your brain with the latest research as The New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science brings contemporary theories on the impact of dance on the brain to the dance floor this Friday, April 19 from 6pm to 10:30pm for This is Your Brain on Dance. In addition to the dancing and brain-using, there will be a cash bar, TED Talks in the planetarium, food trucks and a farewell celebration for Cretaceous king of the dance floor Stan the T-Rex. Tickets are $15 at the door ($10 for museum and dance club members) for this 21-and-over event.
