The Week Ahead: #YoungerThanRihanna Edition



A few weeks ago, DISmagazine announced it would team up with 89plus and Serpentine Gallery in search of artists who are #YoungerThanRihanna. The contest officially opened yeterday and promises a cash prize in the form of two new grants; the two winners will be selected by international jury and popular vote, respectively. Artists, writers, architects, filmmakers, musicians, designers, scientists, and technologists are all welcome to submit, provided they are young enough.  

Selected events, exhibitions and deadlines this week, culled from Rhizome Announce.
