Organized in collaboration with Carnegie International, 57th Edition, 2018 this evening program is a musical synthesis of the International’s exhibition Dusty Groove II: Space Is a Diamond.
Working in collaboration, John Corbett, Jim Dempsey, and artist Josiah McElheny have presented a gallery of artifacts anchored by sculptural portraits of four maverick musicians of the twentieth century: John Cage, Pauline Oliveros, Harry Partch, and Sun Ra, plus an homage to the “cosmic explorations” of the twenty-first century musical visionary, Joe McPhee.
The performance brings together Joe McPhee, Claire Chase, and Peter Evans, three giants of contemporary of music, and a revival of composer Lucia Dlugoszewski’s “Space is a Diamond,” performed for the first time in over 40 years.
Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
Co-presented with The Andy Warhol Museum.
