    Laurie Anderson’s virtual-reality experience To the Moon—a collaboration with Hsin-Chien Huang—opens at The Dowse Art Museum’s Lower Hutt in Wellington, New Zealand, on Saturday. The exhibition runs daily through June 7 as part of the New Zealand Festival, for which Anderson is a guest curator.

    “It’s a very good time to be creating new realities,” Anderson told the Guardian ahead of the exhibit’s UK opening last summer. “The moon is a great subject for that—it’s a great way to investigate the unreal.”

    Devendra Banhart concludes his European winter tour, featuring music from his new album, Ma, in Portugal, with sold-out shows at Hard Club in Porto on Saturday and Capitólio in Lisbon on Sunday and Monday. He is back home in the US to perform at Big Ears Festival at the end of March and returns to Europe this summer.

    “Banhart's singular world remains as intoxicating as ever on the earthly, analogue-sounding Ma,” says Q in a four-star review of his new album. “It feels as if all of human life is here.”
