WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., March 13, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Award-winning visual artist and composer Christian Marclay's new composition "To Be Continued" will be performed at the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) by ensemBle BaBel on April 12, 2017, 7 p.m.
Marclay, who Newsweek named one of the ten most important artists of today, will present an Artist Talk in person preceding the performance at 5:30 p.m.
This composition is part the SoundSeen /SoundSeen: Remix exhibition organized in collaboration with Wake Forest University's Hanes Gallery highlighting works by artists Marclay, John Cage and Anthony Braxton in which drawings, diagrams and images take the place of standard musical notation in their "graphic scores." The exhibit is on view March 16 – May 28, 2017 at SECCA, and continues through March 26 at Hanes Gallery.
Marclay, 62, is a pioneer of using records and turntables as musical instruments to create sound collages becoming known as one of the first 'turnbalists' in the late 1970's. His highly varied body of work ranges from sound to video, sculpture and two-dimensional work, much of which is concerned with "seeing" sound and "hearing" images.
Performance and exhibit admission are free. RSVP is highly encouraged. You can reserve your spot for the Artist Talk and performance at www.secca.org
