The Guggenheim’s stillspotting nyc series has made it’s way through each borough over the past year: strange therapy sessions in Brooklyn, contemplative music in Manhattan, storytelling in Queens, and a mermaid in Staten Island. Now the project is wrapping up with Improv Everywhere’s Audiogram in the Bronx. To celebrate, the museum is throwing a variety show finale on October 9 in collaboration with experimental music festival Unsound.
The variety show includes performances, films, readings, and reflections by architects, artists, scientists, politicians, philosophers, and musicians. Expect to listen to sound collages, talk about poetic silence, reflect on Buddhist stillness, explore digital sound maps, and much more.
