Dearest Boston nerds and friends of nerds,
Nerdnite is exceptionally excited about January’s special event, which will be held at the A.R.T. Oberon theater in Harvard Square (please see below for full event details). For those of you who have been wondering whether Nerdnite might occasionally take place in a more spacious setting … your time is now. We have the A.R.T. to thank for this, and for making available the director of their new show on Buckminster Fuller to speak at Nerdnite about this famous pathbreaker in the field of nerdery. Also thanks to A.R.T. it’s possible to buy advance tickets to this month’s Nerdnite. They’re only $5. As always, tickets will also be available at the door.
Naturally, DJ Claude Money will be spinning nerd-appropriate tunes throughout the night. Here’s the lineup:
Talk 1: R. Buckminster Fuller: Prototype of the American Nerd By D.W. Jacobs
D.W. Jacobs is the playwright and director of “R. Buckminster Fuller: THE HISTORY (and Mystery) OF THE UNIVERSE” which starts Jan 14 at the A.R.T. You can read more about the play here, or buy tickets here.
Talk 2: Derivatives Work: The Brief Histories of “Happy Birthday” and “Who Let the Dogs Out” By Ben Sisto
Ben Sisto is an artist and event producer living in Brooklyn, NY. A graduate of the Massachusetts College of Art’s SIM program, he has exhibited works at Harvard University, Mass MoCA, Artists Space, and Printed Matter; organized live events for the likes of Susan Blackmore, Fugazi, and Silver Apples; spoken at NY’s Open Video Conference, and will be moderating a panel on visual arts for World’s Fair Use Day 2011 in Washington DC.
Be there and be square!
