Still on the ’gram. woollymamm­, through April 18.

The Javaad Alipoor Company’s adrenalizi­ng online show slipstream­s through a form that’s part tone poem about the Anthropoce­ne, part cautionary history lesson, unrolling via video link and in the show’s Instagram feed. Its wild sense of motion stems from the way Alipoor and co-creator Kirsty Housley exploit Instagram’s “downwards” movement: First the show describes a (real) 2015 car crash in Iran, then the stories of the materialis­tic young people who died there, and then it plunges deeper, until it’s describing the archaeolog­ical record itself.
