DJs, live musicians and video artists play and perform throughout the night; starting at sunset and ending at sunrise. Complimentary tea and water are provided to all who attend.

—Event, Stream, Object— introduces a new dimension to the art of sound. An intersection of space, sound, and sophisticated technology, the exhibit uses a Meyer Sound system to challenge one's ability to "describe what we hear, when, where and from whom it is heard."

Footage from Florian Hecker's installation at Sadie Coles HQ gallery in London (14 October to 22 November 2008).

In almost every issue since December 1997, the contemporary art monthly Artforum has asked a member of the art world to compile a list of his or her top ten favorite recent exhibitions (as well as concerts, television programs, books, and events) in a list that displays the writer's taste as well as his or her wit. With this hefty artist's book, James Hoff has reprinted the text of every column alongside the abstract designs of blacked-out photographs that once depicted the writers' picks. Inlcudes Kate Bush, David Byrne, Dave Eggers, Dave Hickey, Charlie Kaufman, Mike Kelley, Barbara Kruger, Matmos, Glenn O'Brien, Amy Sillman, Laurie Simmons, John Waters and dozens more. Also related, is the archive of UbuWeb's monthly Top Ten picks.

James Hoff is an artist living in New York City. He, along with Miriam Katzeff, is the co-founder of Primary Information.
