MoMA

PopRally invites you to a special performance by the celebrated Icelandic band Sigur Rós, in conjunction with the exhibition Take your time: Olafur Eliasson.

Featuring thirty-eight works installed at both MoMA and P.S.1, Take your time explores the highly experimental work of Olafur Eliasson, whose immersive environments and large-scale installations elegantly recreate the extremes of landscape and atmosphere in his native Iceland. Eliasson’s work recontextualizes elements such as light, water, ice, fog, stone, and moss to create unique situations that shift viewers’ perceptions of place and self.

Sigur Rós creates ethereal, transcendent music that often induces a feeling of wonderment–a stirring accompaniment to Eliasson’s explorations of space, color, and illumination.

This event includes an exclusive viewing of Take your time, which closes to the public on June 30.

I think Sigur Ros surprised everyone yesterday (Icelandic National Day) by playing for almost two hours. Less surprising was that a museum lobby is not the ideal setting for a concert. It wasn’t bad. There were just a lot more people talking and drinking and walking around than at the completely silent, seated show at Grand Ballroom the night before. MoMA also doesn’t have a stage. More pictures, and the setlist from the museum show, below….
