Program Description

Experience performances by some of New York’s most exciting musicians in response to Anne Lindberg’s the eye’s level, a site-specific installation that uses hundreds of strings to evoke a cool ray of light raking across the gallery. Each musician will enliven the gallery to create a resonant space between the strings of their respective instruments and the strings in Lindberg’s work.
