A GUGGENHEIM MUSIC SERIES
Friday, April 13
Grouper and Julianna Barwick
Friday, April 27
Thursday, May 10
The three-part series of live music that accompanies John Chamberlain: Choices, on view through May 13 at the Guggenheim Museum, Divine Ricochet takes its thematic cue from the poetic fusion, chaotic riffing, explosive color and sublime assemblage that characterized Chamberlain’s work.
The series title is borrowed from a 1991 work by the late American sculptor. A lover of music, Chamberlain pushed boundaries as he explored abstraction, rhythm, harmony, and dissonance, providing a vibrant context for contemporary musical experiments in the museum’s rotunda. Like Chamberlain’s work, the music of Grouper, Julianna Barwick, Cold Cave, and Zola Jesus exemplify the intense push and pull between power and delicacy, structure and abstraction.
