Backstage: Anne McGuire
All summer long, as part of the exhibition Stage Presence, we’re hosting LIVE performances in a specially commissioned fourth-floor performance space created by Tucker Nichols. Totally awesome artist lineup, and we’re posting rehearsal pix plus performance videos every week.
Anne McGuire’s rehearsal yesterday for Music Again:
Drawing on her earlier video work I Am Crazy and You’re Not Wrong (1997), Bay Area artist McGuire develops an in-gallery television special where live, simulcast, and recorded performers sing with and against each other. With her longtime collaborator Wobbly, she creates a new song cycle that can loop and change direction at any time.
Check out this week’s performance: Thursday, August 2, 7:30 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, August 4 and 5, 3 p.m. Free with museum admission.
