Public Engagement Music & Performance


  • This is a past program

Performers interact with massive cloth forms, creating a movement-based dialogue between their bodies, the public, and the museum space. Conceived by Brazilian artist Martha Araújo and first performed in 1985, these works will be re-created during the exhibition opening.


Sábado 16 de septiembre a las 8:15 p.m.

Los intérpretes interactúan con grandes telas de formas espaciales,  creando un diálogo a partir del  movimiento, entre sus cuerpos, el público y el espacio del museo. Concebidas por la artista brasileña Martha Araújo y estrenadas en 1985, estas performances se recrearán durante la inauguración de la exposición.
