Plug In ICA Lounge at the WSO’s New Music Festival
January 25 to 31, 2014
Centennial Concert Hall | 555 Main Street | Winnipeg, Canada
Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art presents Main Street by David Wityk on exhibition at the Plug In ICA Lounge (aka Piano Nobile Gallery) during the WSO’s New Music Festival.
David Wityk’s photographs Main Street, 2006-2011 were first exhibited at Plug In ICA during the My Winnipeg: The Artists’ Choice exhibition in 2013.
Similar to Edward Ruscha’s Every Building on the Sunset Strip, this is a measure for posterity and a point of reference to what Main Street was in 2008.
This exhibition is open to WSO New Music Festival ticket holders and by appointment. Contact the Centennial Concert Hall, Piano Nobile Gallery curator at firstname.lastname@example.org or (204) 221-5446 for appointments.
The creative seed of this year’s New Music Festival is the relationship between Pierre Boulez, reflecting the deep rooted contemporary traditions in Europe, and Frank Zappa, the American maverick and iconoclast, who began the process of breaking down genres of all types. It is from this new location in music that the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra goes “beyond,” into the diverse new pathways of music today from Arvo Pärt and Valentin Silvestrov, to Jonny Greenwood and Owen Pallett, from Glenn Branca and Phil Kline, to Max Richter and Colin Stetson.
