Stephen Prina

  • This is a past program

Stephen Prina is a multidisciplinary artist as well as a composer and musician who has interpreted works by Beethoven, Schoenberg, Sonic Youth, Steely Dan, and many others. A screening of Prina’s Vinyl II (2000) is followed by a live solo concert by Prina. Vinyl II is a music film scored for string quartet, horn, and voice with interlaced visual arts references, from 17th-century devotional painting to Andy Warhol’s 1965 film Vinyl.

In conjunction with Take It or Leave It: Institution, Image, Ideology.
