It Came from Brooklyn Concert Series

 

50th Anniversary

It Came from Brooklyn celebrates the Guggenheim’s 50th Anniversary by showcasing Brooklyn’s emerging and established talents in the fields of music and literature. The final concert in the series on October 30, 2009, featured music by Yeasayer and Tanlines, a reading by Rachel Sherman, and Max Silvestri as MC. Taking place in Frank Lloyd Wright’s famed rotunda from 8 pm to 12 am, the series reinforced the museum's identity as a versatile, dynamic site for a variety of mutually invigorating art practices. Coproduced by Sam Brumbaugh, it continued the recent tradition of acclaimed performances that have symbiotically activated the space: Marina Abramovic’s Seven Easy Pieces (2005), Cai Guo-Qiang’s collaboration with the Cloud Gate Dance Theatre (2008), and Meredith Monk’s Ascension Variations (2009).
