Next World Tarot [And Evening of Reclaiming Your Brujeria] (172 Allen St, Manhattan @ 7 PM)
Celebrate the 2nd Release of Cristy C. Road’s Next World Tarot! OUT NOW! On Silver Sprocket Comics. The Next World Tarot deck is focused on smashing systemic oppression, owning our truths, being accountable to the people and places that support us, and taking back a connection to our body that may have been lost through trauma or societal brainwashing. The NEXT WORLD TAROT is a visual spectacle of both the battle cry and the reconnection, between outcasts and their criminalized identities.
Holy Mountain: Poison & Pearls (140 Stewart Ave, Brooklyn @ 10:30 PM)
Down a labyrinthian maze of a mountainous mansion, through twists and turns, past ballrooms and bedrooms, stained with secrets and masquerading eyes, a quest for the proverbial pearl.
Weaving past powdered pompadours, pearlescence in the periphery, gleaming in the dark, beckoning you.
4 Rooms. Infinite DJs. 1 Mountain...Holy Mountain!

Octopus: Seent | Organized by Richard Kennedy (150 1st Ave, Manhattan @ 4 PM)
The octopus has nine brains, one located in its head and eight in its arms. Every arm senses the surrounding world and thinks with autonomy, and yet, each arm is part of the animal. Using this decentralized nervous system as an inspiration for Performance Space New York’s curatorial practice, the Octopus series invites artists and guest curators to individually organize an evening-length program with several artists working in any number of disciplines. Octopus continues Performance Space’s legacy of artist-centric programming and creating space for the exploration of ideas free from expectations.
