Moholy-Nagy: Optical Sound

July 21, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

In response to what László Moholy-Nagy referred to as an “opto-acoustic alphabet,” this program highlights the fusion of modulated sound and light. To start the evening, program curators R. Luke DuBois and Zach Layton contextualize the event with a presentation in the museum’s Peter B. Lewis Theater, followed by a multimedia performance and turntable concert. The evening culminates on the museum’s rotunda floor with a large-scale multichannel presentation of innovative Hungarian electronic music from the 1970s. Moholy-Nagy: Optical Sound aims to provide an experience for visitors that exemplifies Moholy-Nagy’s dream of a “groove script.”

$30, $20 members, $15 students. Includes an exhibition viewing with cash bar. For more information, visit guggenheim.org/moholy-programs.

This public program is co-presented with the Balassi Institute Hungarian Cultural Center New York.
