Songs from the Deep: Musical Performance

This event is no longer on sale.

Friday May 14

7:00 PM  –  8:00 PM

Artists Jenny Kendler and Andrew Bearnot join forces with musicians and composers Lyn Goeringer (Assistant Professor, MSU College of Music) and David Rothenberg (Distinguished Professor of Philosophy and Music, New Jersey Institute of Technology) to explore communication between humans and other species, specifically through music and performance. Drawing inspiration from Kendler and Bearnot’s collaborative work, Whale Bells, in Kendler’s Artist Project Series exhibition, the ensuing discussion will be interwoven with performances by both Goeringer and Rothenberg. Attendees will also be invited to engage with the invited guests, touching on themes of interdisciplinary and interspecies collaboration, environmental justice, and the language of music as a way to reach beyond the verbal. The solo exhibition, Jenny Kendler: The Long Goodbye, is on view January 16–June 26, 2021, at the MSU Broad Art Museum.
