Join Spectrum as Thurston Moore, co-founder of Sonic Youth, performs live in front of a projection of Street, a video by British-born artist James Nares that features Moore's original music.
Over the course of a week in September 2011, Nares—a New Yorker since 1974—recorded sixteen hours of footage of people on the streets of Manhattan from a moving car. He then greatly slowed his source material, editing down the results to one hour of steady, continuous motion and scoring it with music for a twelve-string guitar composed and performed by Moore. Nares's video forms the centerpiece of the exhibition Street, on view at the Museum through May 27, 2013.A reception in the Great Hall with complimentary refreshments precedes this one-time-only musical and visual experience.
