Keren Cytter makes films, directs theater plays, edits books, and writes novels. For MINI/Goethe-Institut Curatorial Residencies Ludlow 38, the artist has organised a three-day festival offering an insight into New York’s contemporary art and performance scene. In the evenings of June 5, 6, and 7, artists, musicians, curators, and writers including Hayley Silverman & Matthew Schrader, Kayla Guthrie, Lary 7, Lumi Tan, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, and Michael Mahalchick will come to Ludlow 38 to introduce their current practices and transform the exhibition space into their own stage. There will be book launches, screenings, talks, and various performances. Writer Jack Gross has lent his face to the festival. During the day, Cytter’s most recent video work "Game" (2015) will be screened at the space. "Keren Cytter Presents: The Last Summer Fest" is a production without a script.
