Experimental musicians Alan Licht and C. Spencer Yeh (Burning Star Core) join the Institute of Contemporary Art for the opening night of Excursus IV: Primary Information. The Penn exhibition space, celebrating its 50th Anniversary in the fall, has invited the New York-based archival organization Primary Information to curate this final Excursus series, which invites guest artists to reimagine the museum’s exhibition space. From ICA:
Excursus is a multifaceted initiative at the ICA in which artists, designers, publishers, and other cultural producers whose work engages the archive and publication are invited to create a platform for more intimate programming, alongside an online residency at excursus.icaphila.org. Building on the idea of an excursus (an exposition or digression from a primary text) each invited artist-in-residence activates and re-imagines both the physical and discursive space of the ICA.
Tonight’s opening event is free, with light refreshments being offered. The exhibit will run from March 20th through June 16th. For more information visit the Facebook event page here. Below, watch Alan Licht perform “The Accompanists” at ICA in November of 2007.
