Feb 17 at 3 pm - ArKtype: Triptych (Eyes of One on Another) by Bryce Dessner and Korde Arrington Tuttle

from 43.00

Thirty years after the artist Robert Mapplethorpe’s death, in conjunction with the Guggenheim’s Implicit Tensions: Mapplethorpe Now exhibition, the museum will host a special preview of this new music theater work, which takes the artist’s critically acclaimed and controversial photographs as a point of departure. Prior to the work’s New York premiere at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, composer Bryce Dessner, librettist Korde Arrington Tuttle, and director Daniel Fish and Roomful of Teeth, with a live chamber orchestra, discuss their creative process and perform highlights from their new collaboration. Through music, projection of Mapplethorpe’s images, and use of both theatrical and photographic lighting techniques, Triptych (Eyes of One on Another) puts the audience inside the artist’s view finder, inside his bold and voracious view of how human beings look, touch, feel, hurt and love one another.

Triptych (Eyes of One on Another) is the first live/theatrical performance of its kind to integrate the work of Robert Mapplethorpe. Produced by ArKtype / Thomas O. Kriegsmann, the work features a libretto by Korde Arrington Tuttle with poetry by Essex Hemphill and Patti Smith, music direction by Brad Wells, lighting by Yuki Nakase, and costumes by Carlos Soto.
