The three-part series of live music that accompanies John
Chamberlain: Choices, on view through May 13 at the
Guggenheim Museum, Divine Ricochet takes its thematic cue from the
poetic fusion, chaotic riffing, explosive color
assemblage that characterized Chamberlain’s work. The series begins with Grouper and Julianna Barwick on Friday, April 13, and continues with Cold Cave on Friday, April 27, and Zola Jesus on Thursday, May 10. Like
Chamberlain's work, the music of these musicians exemplify the intense push and pull between
delicacy, structure and abstraction.
The series title is borrowed from a 1991 work by the late American sculptor. A lover of music, Chamberlain pushed boundaries as he explored abstraction, rhythm, harmony, and dissonance, providing a vibrant context for contemporary musical experiments in the museum's rotunda.
Tickets for Grouper and Julianna Barwick go on sale at noon on Tuesday, March 20 for members and Wednesday, March 21, for nonmembers. Learn more and purchase tickets.
