Tin Drum: Medusa

March 17-April 18, 2023: Reservations are free, but required

Medusa, directed by scientist and artist Yoyo Munk, is an ambitious project developed by media collective Tin Drum in collaboration with architect Sou Fujimoto. Bridging art, science, music, and technology, it comprises a unique and evolving mixed reality experience that envelops visitors within a new realm of physicality, visuality, and sound. Viewed through optically transparent glasses, Medusa intersperses thousands of hanging vertical columns onto the Main Hall of Pioneer Works, responding to the collective behavior of the space’s visitors. The experience is paired with a soundscape that pairs underwater recordings with a melodic progression, composed by Ryuichi Sakamoto and interpreted by Kelly Moran, which emanates from a disklavier piano. As a whole, the experience explores contrasts between individual and collective ways of being, and between non-human and human-made architectures, drawing inspiration from natural structures in the upper atmosphere and the deep sea.

What Is Psychedelic: Aura Rosenberg

March 17- June 11th, 2023: Reservations are free, but required

What Is Psychedelic, co-presented by Mishkin Gallery and Pioneer Works, marks the first institutional survey of New York-born artist Aura Rosenberg. This two-venue exhibition traces the artist’s trajectory from early paintings of the 1970s to her more recent endeavors in photography, film, sculpture, and installation. Throughout her five decades long career in New York and Berlin, Rosenberg has moved through diverse styles, preferring to work thematically and serially while often returning to ideas from past projects. The exhibition also includes several previously unseen works, and Rosenberg’s collaborations with artists like Mike Kelley, Mary Heilmann, Louise Lawler and Ei Arakawa, all of which chronicle the breadth of her multifaceted career.
