Summer Happenings: Sky Ferreira, Richard Hell, Haxan Cloak, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Mas Ysa, Ryan Heffington, and more
The second program in Nonobject(ive): Summer Happenings at The Broad mines The Broad’s investment in “downtown” art sensibilities for an evening inspired by the asphalt jungle. Sky Ferreira will DJ a set of dark and 80s pop, evoking the spirit of clubs such as Danceteria, Mudd Club, Pyramid, and Tunnel where high art mixed with popular culture. Witness a reading by Richard Hell in collaboration with the ecstatic, minimalist droning thrum of the Haxan Cloak. The warm, vast analog synthesizers of Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith will hover over the intense, churning rhythms of Mas Ysa. Dance and visual art collaborations, which figured centrally in the New York scene, will be created by Ryan Heffington and Brontez Purnell within the galleries and the veiled architecture, reconsidering site-specific performance within the context of contemporary Los Angeles. Experimental performer Anenon will explore the instersection of jazz, electronic, and ambient music for the Broad's distinctive architecture.
