Gallery Talk | The Clamor of Ornament: Exchange, Power, and Joy from the Fifteenth Century to the Present: Curator's Tour


Bringing together more than 200 objects produced over the past five centuries, this show will explore ornament in architecture, art, and design through the lens of drawing. The exhibition will foreground ornament's potential as a mode of communication, a form of currency, and a means of exchange across geographies and cultures. The Clamor of Ornament will seek to address the multilayered complexity of the history of ornament, including the dissonance between the unequal and destructive relationships that mediate its movement between sources. Together, the objects on view will both celebrate and interrogate ornament's fluidity by making connections between motifs, methods, and intentions

Concert | 9-Piece K-Pop Band


They’re not your daughter’s K-Pop band. The nine-piece South Korean ensemble ADG7 (Ak Dan Gwang Chil) draws equal inspiration from newly reclaimed Korean folk styles of gut and minyo and the contemporary Eurocentric stylings of modern K-Pop for music for a mix that will surprise you with its raucous, danceable energy. The band’s charismatic and ultra-fashionably dressed trio of frontwomen are backed by masterfully played traditional Korean instrumentation and present a distinctively theatrical style of performance that's like nothing you've ever heard before, but that you'll never forget. Fresh off of their recent show-stopping Tiny Desk Concert, you won't want to miss the crowd-pleasing sonic sensations that The New York Times calls “catchy, bouncy and brash."
