Performance: Guitar Trio with Rhys Chatham

Thursday, December 7, 2017

7 pm

Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Gallery, 5th Floor

Experience the works on view in Proof: Francisco Goya, Sergei Eisenstein, Robert Longo in a new way with this one-of-a-kind concert. Rhys Chatham, a composer and instrumentalist who “pioneered the fusion of avant-garde minimalism with the electric crunch of punk rock,” performs his influential 1977 composition Guitar Trio in the gallery as an intense and ephemeral soundtrack to Sergei Eisenstein’s silent films. Chatham is joined in the ensemble by Robert Longo and a group of local musicians including Ernie Brooks, Karen Haglof, Jason Bartell, Jonathan Kane, Jon Kessler, and Lee Ranaldo.
