BONE MUSIC at GARAGE Museum of Contemporary Art, Moscow

  • garage 9/32 Krymsky Val st., 119049 moscow Russia (map)

The X-Ray Audio Exhibtion will be at GARAGE MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART in Moscow in  a site specific, expanded and locally researched instance of the show that has been touring internationally since January 2015, gaining media attention in the UK (with major features in The Guardian, on the BBC Today program, BBC Russia, BBC Ukraine BBC World amongst many others)

The exhibition draws out the hidden accidental aesthetic of disposable street culture objects and raises them to the level of high-cultural artefacts. It evokes the era and circumstances in which they were created and tells a unique story in which music, forbidden culture, recycling, cold war politics and human endeavour intersect through original artefacts, projections, film and sound.

The exhibition will be accompanied by live events including round-table discussions on forbidden culture, a film program and a live event where X-Ray Audio demonstrate the process of cutting music to x-ray from live musical performances (as recently performed with musicians Marcella Puppini, Russian theremin player Lydia Kavina and Marc Almond.
