Tarek Atoui: Organ Within

Jun 27 | Thu |
View Website

As part of the Guggenheim’s Middle Eastern Circle Presents series, musicians and artists improvise on a hybrid sculptural object by Lebanese artist Tarek Atoui in the museum’s iconic rotunda. This new work builds on Atoui’s collaboration with instrument makers Léo Maurel and Vincent Martial and their research into historical church pipe organs, modular synthesizers, and the sonic experiences of the deaf, engaging the museum’s acoustics to create a unique aural environment. A moderated conversation with Atoui and his collaborators will precede the performance.

Performers: Chuck Bettis, C. Lavender, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, Victoria Shen, Keith Fullerton Whitman, and C. Spencer Yeh

Venue: Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
