Win a New Museum Membership and Attend a Private Party with the Dreamachine

Brion Gysin, William Burroughs and the Dreamachine
Hey, do you enjoy visiting the New Museum but hate having to go on Thursday nights when it's free but ultra-cramped and crowded? Do you rarely visit because you didn't even know it was free on Thursday nights? (It is, really.) Well here's your chance to make it free all the time: our friends at the New Museum will be raffling off a free membership every week, beginning today, just for all you lovely, culturally insatiable L Mag readers. Simply send an email with your name and address and the subject "MEMBER" to, and you'll be entered to win this week's free membership.

The winner of the first raffle also gets a ticket to a private party on July 13 for the opening of Brion Gysin: Dream Machine, the first U.S. retrospective devoted to the late collagist, painter, writer and performer. The evening will include sets by John Zorn, Beaut and York Factory Complaint, and, of course, a demonstration of the Dreamachine, Gysin's interior vision-facilitating kinetic light sculpture, pictured, between him and lifelong collaborator William Burroughs. That's right: free New Museum membership and you finally get to be just like Burroughs. Get on that.
