Arca to present &&&&& at Pitchfork-sponsored multimedia event in hopes that Pitchfork will then review &&&&&

Arca released &&&&& (TMT [Eureka!] Review) a few months ago as a free mixtape:

Visual artist Jesse Kanda made a grotesque moving image to accompany it:

Now Arca and Jesse Kanda are collaborating to turn &&&&& into a full-on grotesque multimedia experience, centered around a film that visually interprets a nice gooey chunk of the album. Just yesterday they made “the most beautiful mistake of all time”:

Said grotesque experience will be taking place this Sunday, October 6, from 4-7 PM in the VW Performance Dome at MoMA PS1 in Queens. The event was put together by FORMS (Pitchfork’s “multimedia initiative”) and Absolut (Pitchfork’s vodka of choice after their FORMS Festival didn’t happen). Along with the featured film, a vocal ensemble led by Abby Fischer will perform even-more-abstracted versions of Arca’s music, with Thunderhorse Ent. providing the light show. You can buy tickets for the event here.
