Pérez Art Museum Miami and Florida Grand Opera collaborated for a one-night-only performance to activate Lawrence Weiner’s immersive installation, OUT OF SIGHT.
Members of Florida Grand Opera’s Young Artist Program performed excerpts from seven classic operas re-imagined to include the inspiring phrases from Weiner’s artwork. These phrases were translated into five operatic languages—French, Italian, Spanish, German and English.
Rebekah Diaz-Fandrei, Florida Grand Opera’s director of education and community engagement, called the event “an exciting mash up of interactive art and opera.”
Lawrence Weiner: OUT OF SIGHT is produced by Guest Curator and Collaborator Larry Warsh and is organized at PAMM by Chief Curator Tobias Ostrander. Support is provided by Knight Foundation. Courtesy Lawrence Weiner Studio and Larry Warsh. The exhibition is on view through June 25, 2017.
