Americas Society (New York, NY)
Americas Society presents Joaquín Orellana: The Spine of Music, the first exhibition of the Guatemalan composer’s útiles sonoros (sound tools) in the United States alongside the work of contemporary artists. The exhibition connects the musician’s avant-garde sensibility with that of artists including Carlos Amorales, María Adela Díaz, Akira Ikezoe, and Alberto Rodríguez Collía, each of whom has spent time with the composer and created work related to his practice.
This exhibition is supported through the JFNY Grant for Arts and Culture.
