New York! Fuse the worlds of art and music on May 5, 2013 at PS1 as The National will be collaborating with Icelandic Artist Ragnar Kjartansson (whose 2010 exhibit was really cool – click link for pix) for a 6 hour performance which will feature The National singing their song “Sorrow” over and over for the duration of the performance which will not surprisingly be called “A Lot of Sorrow.” Interesting (even though Fischerspooner has done a similar installation), according 2 G. You can get tickets (which are only $15 plus service charges) at this link.

Ragnar Kjartansson at Luhring Augustine now through August 13, 2010
When you walk into the Ragnar Kjartansson exhibit at Luhring Augustine in New York, your first thought is likely to be “WOW!” On display are 144 paintings arranged from ceiling to floor by the Icelandic artist. And that’s just the first part of the exhibit. A video installation is featured in the second exhibition area. The most astonishing factoid about this exhibit is that these 144 paintings were created over a 6 month period in 2009 by the 33 year old artist!
Luhring Augustine is located at 531 West 24th Street and Ragnar Kjartansson’s works are on display until August 13, 2010.
