Music and Visual Arts Meet in the Forge of Performing PAC

Music and Visual Arts Meet in the Forge of Performing PAC
#Art

The interaction between sounds and images is at the centre of a new edition of Performing PAC, which returns for the summer with a new schedule of events. With Laurie Anderson as the perfect Godmother, this event open to the public presents video works, rare archival material and talk from artists, critics and curators. The goal? To explore the relationship between music and visual arts, a connection which is increasingly more evident both in the practice and the research of contemporary art. The protagonists of the exhibition are five talents that have looked deeply at the phenomenon - Barbara and Ale, Jeremy Deller with Nick Abrahams, Invernomuto, Pamela Diamante and João Onofre. A selection of music videos narrate the incursion of art into the universe of pop and rock music with contributions from visionary directors like Anton Corbijn, Chris Cunningham, Jonathan Glazer, Michel Gondry, Spike Jonze, Mark Romanek and Stephane Sednaoui. The installation Pile à CD by the young Marie Cérisier helps PAC pay homage to Laurie Anderson, icon of multimedia art who, in 2003, chose the spaces on Via Palestro to bring a memorable performance to life. For the first time, video of the performance is projected, while in the courtyard of the Pavilion, the feature film Heart of a Dog will be projected, the film with which Anderson enchanted the public at the 72nd Venice Film Festival.
