Let's get out of the house, connect, learn a thing or two and enjoy. This week we're talking with international artists in abandoned spaces, architects building new places, and podcasters when you can see their faces. Visit the Westword calendar for more good times this week.
Black Cube Nomadic Museum Artist Talk with SANGREE
Former RTD Bus Plaza (Market Street Station)
5 p.m. Tuesday, free
The Market Street Station used to be downtown's hub of public transportation, but it's been empty since Union Station reopened...until now. Black Cube, the nomadic art gallery, is using the site for an installation by SANGREE, the artistic union between Mexico City's René Godínez Pozas and Carlos Lara. Their piece, unveiled last week, deals with iconoclasm, minimal aesthetics and anthropology — in the middle of this modern ruin. See the work and meet the artists tonight at 5 p.m., then stick around for a discussion at 6 p.m.
Left Hand Right Brain Live Podcast Show
The Molecule Effect
6 p.m. Tuesday, free
Podcast tapings are everywhere; they're a great way to marry modern technology with an old-fashioned live performance and get-together. This week you can enjoy a discussion of the creative process and the human condition as Left Hand Right Brain hosts JD Lopez and Royce Roeswood chat with Michelle Graham over beers. Grab a drink and pod along.
Summer Speaker Series: Art, Architecture + Accessibility
5:30 p.m. Wednesday, free
Denver is booming, and some of the new projects around the area are being created with the disabled community in mind. Gensler Denver welcomes local architects and designers working on everything from a school for the deaf to an Olympic and Paralympic Museum in Colorado Springs that's being billed as the most accessible museum in the world. Listen to the discussion of the changing landscape of our town, which should be inclusive for all, and bring questions for the Q&A session that follows.
