new york: musique plastique

© agnès b. / étienne charry - dans (((l'onde))) [2011]

opening today [6pm-9pm] at the agnès b. galerie boutique is musique plastique, an exhibition and a series of concerts, performances, workshops, conferences, as well as a catalogue and a compilation that was first presented last year at galerie du jour agnès b. in paris. the event is curated by jean-françois sanz and showcases the work of 20 international artists known to continuously switch between music and art. it proposes visitors to understand their many juggling projects from a double point of view: visual and musical. only this way, their impact, diversity and individuality can be understood as a specific quality that separates them from other contemporary art and music scenes. musique plastique encourages the use of a wide variety of media, from drawing to video, photography to painting and multimedia installations. musically, the artists explore numerous styles, commonly with a pop sensibility and a d.i.y. approach but in various musical styles. participating artists include jonas mekas, hisham bharoocha + ben vida, liz wendelboo and étienne charry [on through aug 25]. click [here] to r.s.v.p. for access to today's opening. location: 50 howard street [soho].
