Why hello there, dearest faithful Filthy Dreams readers! We’d like to officially invite you to our intrepid contributor Osman Can Yerebakan’s exhibition launch at AC Institute this Friday, April 29 from 7-9PM. What exhibition, you say? Oh I’m so glad you asked!

In the late 80s, a genius computer programmer who recently developed a revolutionary computer code learns that his days are numbered due to a terminal illness effecting his memory and speech. During this time he encounters a mysterious nightclub performer whose stage persona heavily relies on her ability to foretell the future. My Nights Are More Beautiful Than Your Days stems from this namesake Andrzej Żuławski film and adopts the chaotic language used between two lovers whose capacity to communicate rapidly vanishes. Similar to the paradox the protagonist experiences—enduring the loss of his verbal competence as an autonomous being yet standing on the brink of revolutionizing communication technology—the exhibition articulates various aesthetics of the contemporary chaos emerging from the discordance between the corporeal and the automatic. Benefitting from its online presence, the exhibition juxtaposes ways artists portray mayhem and disorder facing rapidly improving computer generated technologies.
However should you decide to leave your worldwide web world on Friday night, please come to the live event Nights Days, featuring installations, screenings and performances by several of the artists included in the show as well as a special performance by Michael Clemow.
