Exhibition Opening "Marina Rosenfeld - The Agonists"

Thu, October 19, 2023, 6pm
in the 2-Raum

Marina Rosenfeld’s new installation “The Agonists” populates the galleries of Museum Art.Plus with works in several media— pigment prints on silk, drawings and prints on paper, posters, and a fragmentary soundtrack — advancing the composer and artist’s longtime preoccupation with the social and spatial arrangements of sounds and their representations and distortions.

Rosenfeld’s works invite the viewer to engage across aural, optical and affective registers. Considerations of scale, of likeness, and of material difference and affiliation stand in, in their closeness or adjacency to music, for problems of instrumentation, the use and arrangement of bodies, histories of practice and even affiliation to various (historical) formal languages. New works take up their place alongside an aftereffect of an older one: a set of blank scores that are posters after the fact for the work Deathstar Orchestration, premiered at Donaueschinger Musiktage in 2017.

Marina Rosenfeld is an American composer and artist. Rosenfeld has created works for the Museum of Modern Art, the Park Avenue Armory, the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, the Fondacion Serralves and the Guggenheim Museum among many others, and participated in surveys including the Whitney, Aurora, Montréal, PERFORMA and Liverpool biennials and the radio program of documenta14.

Opening speech: Lydia Rilling (Artistic Director Donaueschingen Music Days).

🥂 Following the opening, there will be a champagne reception in the upper foyer of the museum.

At 8 pm the panel discussion will begin in the Spiegelsaal.

Our opening hours during the Music Days: Thurs 5-8pm : Fri-Sat 10am-6pm : Sun 10am-5pm
