Exhibition at Kunstmuseum Magdeburg

People Like Us will have two pieces, The Sound of the End of Music and 4’33” The Movie in a group exhibition called in at Kunstmuseum Magdeburg. http://www.kunstmuseum-magdeburg.de/de/ausstellungen/vorschau.html

 Ámbitus. Art and music today | 8.9.2018 – 6.1.2019

The fact that visual arts and music do not have to be separate worlds shows from September 9th at the Magdeburg Art Museum. For a few decades, artists have been exploring or transcending the transitions and spaces between these two arts. Today, video and performance artists equally use existing and newly composed music as musicians and composers have begun to make their compositions visually tangible. And of course there are also exciting cooperations between the two fields.
