FRIENDS OF METROPOLIS

CY TWOMBLY . BEAUTIFUL IN THE SUBVERSION OF BEAUTY

Nate Wooley, Jon Irabagon, Matt Moran, and Mivos Quartet.




'beautiful in the subversion of beauty'
is dedicated to the American artist Cy Twombly, whose works often appear to be allegories of fleetingness. Streaks, scribbles, rough sketches and symbols similar to written codes are woven into a linkage between picture, myth and poetry.

The composition is part VIII of composer Bojan Vuletic's ongoing composition cycle RecomposingArt (2011– ), which takes inspiration from artworks in the fields of poetry, art, photography, theatre, dance, cinematography and literature through recomposition. Vuletic takes these works out of their context in a completely subjective manner, transporting them into a new, purely musical and independent form. So far the following compositions have been premiered and performed in New York and Germany: paintings by Gerhard Richter and Pablo Picasso, a movie by Michael Haneke, novels by Franz Kafka, Haruki Murakami and Jorge Luis Borges and poems by Paul Celan.

'beautiful in the subversion of beauty' for string quartet, saxophone, vibraphone and trumpet is performed by an ensemble of some of the most distinguished New York musicians of contemporary and improvised music.




Doors open at 7:00pm, show at 7:30pm.
