Alvin Lucier (and His Artist Friends), curated by Andrea Miller-Keller, is a broad overview of the composer’s distinguished career over nearly six decades. The exhibition will explore the nature of Mr. Lucier’s engagement with artists such as John CageSol LeWittJohn AshberyItalo Calvino and Lee Lozano. Related works by some of these figures will be juxtaposed with the compositions they inspired. The exhibition will also make the first in-depth exploration of the broad influence of Mr. Lucier's work I Am Sitting in a Room (1970). Nearly two dozen audio presentations of his compositions, along with a number of performance videos and an interview with Robert Ashley will be featured. Numerous notated and text-based scores, a select group of artifacts from earlier performances, and an extensive variety of archival memorabilia documenting Mr. Lucier's career to date will be on display. An installation version of Mr. Lucier’s Chambers (1968) realized as a tribute by former students and colleagues will complete the exhibition.
