The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth presents a new installation of the permanent collection. This re-arrangement consists of treasured favorites, rarely seen works from the vault, and new acquisitions.
Glenn Kaino’s work carefully balances formal and conceptual concerns as the artist combines an often unexpected hybrid of materials in order to best communicate an idea, history, or system that might be less effective with traditional art media. For his FOCUS exhibition, Kaino has created a new body of work with the overarching themes of time and space colonization. The presentation includes pin drawings, an animatronic installation that responds to viewers, and a frozen sculptural portrait of the moon.
The music of American composer Ben Moore—who will be on hand to hear and discuss his works at this afternoon concert—has been performed by many leading singers, including soprano Deborah Voigt, mezzo-sopranos Susan Graham and Frederica von Stade, tenors Lawrence Brownlee and Robert White, baritone Nathan Gunn, and six-time Tony winner Audra McDonald. His work has been called “brilliant” and “gorgeously lyrical” by The New York Times, while Opera News has praised the “easy tunefulness” and “romantic sweep” of his songs.
