Location: Wachenheim Gallery
Co-organized with the Skidmore College Music Department
Join us in the exhibition Other Side: Art, Object, Self on Thursday, November 16, at 5:00 pm, for a program of short performances by students in Skidmore Professor Sarah Day-O’Connell’s class “Music 344: Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven.” The class focuses on how European composers of the late eighteenth- and early nineteenth centuries saw music as a truly interdisciplinary endeavor, integrally connected to other fields of inquiry throughout the arts and sciences. In that spirit, students created and will perform multimedia responses to Winterreise (songs XX-XXIV) (after Schubert), 1988, a work by Tim Rollins and K.O.S., itself a visual response to Viennese composer Franz Schubert’s song cycle Die Winterreise [Winter Journey], 1827.
Student Performers include: Samantha Abrams, William Bresee, Alastair Canavan, Rachel Chang, Olivia Cox, Taylor Fohrhaltz-Burbank, Brennan Mitrolka, Caroline Moe, Nicole Mooers, Rachel Perez, Jordan Shedrofsky, and Rebecca Sohn.
This program is organized in conjunction with the Tang’s exhibition Other Side: Art, Object, Self, which includes Winterreise (songs XX-XXIV) (after Schubert). The work features twelve panels and walks us alongside the lovelorn wanderer through the final six songs of Schubert’s cycle. Artists Tim Rollins, Angel Abreu, and Rick Savinon (the latter of K.O.S.) will be in attendance; a discussion between artists and students will follow the presentations.
This event is free and open to the public. New Journeys for Schubert’s Winterreise is co-organized with the Skidmore College Music Department.
