Big news from the boys of Bluebrain this week: they’ve released an audio companion to the Natural History Museum’s Sant Ocean Hall (available here) So if you’re in the mood to wander through an underwater exhibition with abstract electronic dance music burbling through your brain, download the tracks and explore the gorgeous magical world they’ve created. (Also Bluebrain and their multimedia show is playing at the 930 Club this weekend for the Soundbites charity event.)

The weather is looking up so, feel free to gallery hop. As always though, here are some links before the events themselves:

SATURDAY

  • Beautiful Losers is showing at 3:30pm @ Portrait Gallery which features interviews with Shepard Fairey, Harmony Korine, and Barry McGee and focuses on the 1990s art scene and all the attitude that came with it.
  • Gallery Plan B is hosting an opening for Karen Hubacher and Tory Cowles who “both create abstract works using widely varying textures and vivid colors, but their approaches to the surfaces are almost opposite. Hubacher’s works are carefully orchestrated and constructed while Cowles are organic and spontaneous”
