A panel discussion with Bob Boilen, Robert Goldstein, and Robin RoseSaturday, December 10, 2011, 10:00am
Music has played a tremendous role in the stylistic development of the visual arts. It has been particularly important to non-representational artists who have created visual experiences paralleling the sensory effects of music. In his current exhibition, The Big Payback, Robin Rose addresses the shamanistic dynamic between composer, musician, and audience. The show, like the title taken from a James Brown lyric, is both a homage to select musicians and a challenge to Rose's audience.
HEMPHILL will host a panel discussion on the relationship between music and art. Robin Rose will be joined by two renowned music authorities: Bob Boilen, past director of NPR’s All Things Considered, creator of the online music show All Songs Considered, and longtime composer of electronic music; and Robert Goldstein, composer of numerous movie and television scores and NPR’s music librarian responsible for selecting music used on broadcast programming. All three panelists are experienced performers. Goldstein and Rose founded the infamous 1980s band, The Urban Verbs, and Boilen was the creative force behind the now mythical Tiny Desk Unit. There is no doubt this panel will be entertaining and enlightening.
ART TALKS is an ongoing series of talks with artists, curators, collectors, and experts. Since 1998, the series has presented topics such as collecting for beginners and panel discussions on issues in contemporary art.
This event is concurrent with Robin Rose: THE BIG PAYBACK, on view through December 23, 2011.
Tuesday–Saturday, 10:00am–5:00pm, and by appointment
