Turtle Creek Chorale concert in the Modern's Grand Lobby
December 4, 2 pm
Visual artists often work in series, weaving their way through threads of thought, method, and inspiration. With engaged study of the series that comprise an artist’s career, the depth and breadth of one’s knowledge and curiosity is enhanced. A Series Conversation takes as its mission the investigation and celebration of series within individual artists’ oeuvres. Each hour-long session probes a specific series within an artist’s solo exhibition on view at the Modern, inviting conversation, reflection, and connections.
Sounds Modern presents "Hearing Where the End Starts," in conjunction with the KAWS exhibition. Like KAWS' works, the music on the concert will be inspired by graffiti, cartoons, technology, and popular culture. The program will include works by John Zorn, Zack Browning, Eric Lyon, and Charles Dodge.
