SoundSpace: Conversation Pieces

April 21 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Pay what you wish

Now in its tenth season, the Blanton’s acclaimed art and music series “SoundSpace” returns in virtual fashion.

Program curator Steve Parker has invited eight performers to create sonic pieces in response to an artwork in the Blanton’s collection. Online for the first time, the 24th edition of “SoundSpace” will transport audiences to the Blanton through sight, sound, and movement. Filmed in front of the work of art that inspired each, performances include a recreation of an exhausting dance marathon, a lament for a lost mother and the rituals of parenthood, an interpretation of a painting as a graphic score, and a response to the silencing of queer individuals on la frontera that uses “Stacked Waters” by Teresita Fernández to represent the Rio Grande.

Hosted live by Parker and Carter E. Foster, Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs, “SoundSpace: Conversation Pieces” will feature eight pre-recorded performances followed by a live Q&A with performers Alexa Capareda, Graham Reynolds, and Michael Anthony García.

Attendees can pay what they wish. Registration and more information at blantonmuseum.org/soundspace
