Talibam – Tone

January 8, 2013

Every once in a while, the MOMA is actually worth visitng…


Our homies Talibam! have been invited to perform with Yasunao Tone, legendary Japanese Fluxist artist as part of the Museum of Modern Art’s “TOKYO 1955-1970 – A NEW AVANT GARDE” exhibition.
Talibam! will perform with Yasuno Tone, Larry 7 and Sam Kulik on Jan 10th in the Education Building at 6pm. This group will perform a number of Tone’s graphic scores: Anagram for Strings #1 &2, Smooth Event & Music for a Painting will be performed. ‘Music for a Painting’ will feature a MOMA commissioned painting; a work made specifically for this performance by Kulik, Shea, & Mottel. Films of the 1960’s by Limura Takahiko & Kanesaka Kenji will be projected and the ensemble will performatively interpret them.

After the Tone event there will be a performance of Nam June Paik’s Piano Destruction in the MOMA education building lobby.
