Looking at Music: Art and Music in Popular Culture
Organized by Barbara London and Hanne Mugaas
6pm Thursday 21 August 2008
MoMA, Titus Theater 2 - 11 West 53 St, New York NY
This Thursday MoMA presents Looking at Music: Art and Music in Popular Culture, a supporting video program exhibited in conjunction with the Looking at Music, an exhibition currently on view through 31 December 2008. The evening's screening brings together a number of music and art videos with a bend on both counts towards synth melodies, pop culture, gender play and videos cut to the beat. Program highlights include Brazillian queercore act Dominatrix's 1984 video for The Dominatrix Sleeps Tonight, The Cars' Hello Again directed by and briefly featuring Andy Warhol, Seth Price's historical visualization of the New Jack Swing musical genre, Aïda Ruilova's short beat-driven looping videos and Cory Arcangel's ham-fisted demonstration of an Apple Garage Band tuning feature on Jimmy Hendrix's Star Spangled Banner.
