Summer Happenings: A Journey That Wasn’t, Part 1
8 p.m. to midnight
The first of the 2018 Summer Happenings kicks off A Journey That Wasn’t, the museum’s new exhibition that explores artists’ complex representations of time. Gang Gang Dance plays syncopated, experimental synth rock. DJ Stretch Armstrong juxtaposes an eclectic mix of original songs and their remixes. Jean Grae preaches on time, interspersed with her Church of the Infinite You choir’s themed cover songs. Terry Riley performs his 2012 composition “Aleph,” a meditation on Judaism, mathematics and raga. Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs offers an original choral and movement ensemble work inspired by mythological characters who journey between, over, and under worlds. Tara Jane O’Neil reflects on journeys with Jmy James Kidd and The Sunland Dancers. Zap Mama loops her vocals and beatboxing to tie together hip-hop and her Belgian-Congolese roots.
Happenings are 21+. Tickets include same-night access to the museum. Yayoi Kusama's Infinity Mirrored Room—The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away will not be open during the event.
Capacity for the various performances are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis throughout the museum. A Happenings ticket does not guarantee access to all performances. Capacity for Terry Riley is very limited and will become available on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 7 p.m.
