> DESCRIPTION

In collaboration with White Box and the Woodwind Studies Program at NYU Steinhardt’s Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions.

A Post-Postmodern, Sensory Extravaganza intermixing works by those who came across art in the unexpected and unforeseen. Audiences will witness the layering of projections, poetry and music that combine the works of Cage, Warhol, Rauschenberg, Duchamp, Bueys, Goldsworthy, Haring and others with readings from Alan Ginsberg’s Howl. Combined with the live performances of chamber works by Elliot Carter, Peteris Vasks, Carl Nielsen, Hector Villalobos and other masters, the sonic adhesive will be an intermittent performance of John Cage’s Atlas Elclipticalis and the projection of Andy Warhol’s classic film, Sleep. Pasted, overlaid and simultaneous, Wherefore ART Thou will reveal itself in Cage’s multiverse as Warhol’s Sleep transports through time and space.
