Through July 13: 9 Artists is an international, multigenerational group exhibition that considers the changing role of the artist in contemporary culture. Bringing together the expansive practices of some of the most provocative and engaged artists working today—Yael Bartana, Liam Gillick, Natascha Sadr Haghighian, Renzo Martens, Bjarne Melgaard, Nástio Mosquito, Hito Steyerl, and Danh Vo—the exhibition examines ways that they negotiate the complexities and contradictions of living in an ever more complex and networked world. July 15–October 19: List Projects: Sergei Tcherepnin: a site-specific installation. Tcherepnin operates at the intersections of sound, sculpture, and theatre. Often invoking queer, hybrid characters such as the “listening cactus,” the “Maize Mantis,” or the figure of the Pied Piper, Tcherepnin’s scenarios cultivate play between things and bodies, compelling the audience to develop a “score” for listening to these animated objects. These interactions suggest new possibilities for intimacy with sound, where “listening” involves a more expansive state of activity: listening by feeling, listening by walking, listening by looking.
