On Monday, in the gallery housing The Living Room group show, the Contemporary Arts Center begins a summer series spotlighting local performance artists and organizations. Inaugurating the program is spoken-word artist Jim Swill, who will provide his entrancing narration to Screenage Wasteland, a video piece he created using cellphone cameras and free editing software that addresses such subjects as transformation, technological alienation, expansion and ritualistic behavior.

He’ll also read from other material. 

Thereafter, the series runs until Aug. 19, with performances at 8 p.m. every other Monday. Admission to the museum is free Mondays after 5 p.m. Contemporary Arts Center, 44 E. Sixth St., Downtown, contemporaryartscenter.org/performances
