Pidgin Culture Concert Series Presents Debut of Intercultural FOUR OCEANSPidgin Culture Concert Series Presents Debut of Intercultural FOUR OCEANS
by BWW News Desk - Mar 26, 2017

 Pidgin Culture presents the debut of Four Oceans, a trio exploring ritualistic forms of interplay in an improvised context on Thursday, March 30th at 7pm at National Sawdust. A new group, it combines the talents of Old Time Relijun frontman Arrington De Dionyso, Rupert Huber of the famous Viennese trip-hop duo Tosca, and globetrotting drummer/composer Lukas Ligeti. De Dionyso, who is also a painter, performs on bass clarinet and various Indonesian traditional instruments; Huber, on piano and electronics, and Ligeti, on drums. Together, they explore new sonic spaces, evoking distant or nonexistent traditions, references to forgotten or freely invented cultures, and sounds that transport the listener to fantastic worlds the rest of us will never see. It is a music of sparse determination and internal revolution. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Mar 23, 2017

Beginning 27 April 2017, Hauser & Wirth is pleased to present the US debut of four new bodies of work by acclaimed American artist Roni Horn. The exhibition features the photographic opus 'The Selected Gifts (1974 – 2015)', a collection of 67 photographs documenting the history of gifts the artist received over a period of 41 years. Also on view are two new bodies of works on paper, The Dog's Chorus (2016) – shown here for the first time – and Th Rose Prblm (2015), as well as the new glass sculptures 'Water Double, v. 1' and 'Water Double, v. 3' (both 2013 – 2015). Although materially divergent, these works all derive from longstanding questions and themes that have propelled Horn's practice and her ongoing poetic study of the protean nature of identity, meaning, and perception.
