Tarek Atoui: Organ Within
June 27, 2019, 7 pm
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
Performing in the Guggenheim’s iconic rotunda, musicians and artists, including Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, improvise on a hybrid sculptural object by Lebanese artist Tarek Atoui. 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.
$20, $15 members, $10 students.
Supported by members of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum’s Middle Eastern Circle.
