Dia:Chelsea | 545 West 22nd Street

Dia 15 VI 13 545 West 22 Street Dream House will debut with a special series of Just Alap Raga Ensemble concerts on June 13, 19, and 27 with vocals by Young, Zazeela, and Choi and Naren Budhkar on the tabla. An ongoing series of scheduled performances will be held between June and October.

“Dream House is a landmark contribution to the history of sound and light, a truly immersive experience, and one of the most important manifestations of Young and Zazeela’s collaborations,” said Jessica Morgan, Director, Dia Art Foundation. “Since 2015 marks Young’s 80th birthday, Zazeela’s 75th birthday, and the 40th anniversary of the Dream Festival supported by Dia, it is the ideal moment to add this unique sound-and-light installation to Dia’s collection and ensure its vitality far into the future. We are thrilled to activate Dia’s space in Chelsea this summer by presenting Dream House with a full program of performances.”

The version of Dream House at Dia:Chelsea will incorporate a newly designed, site-specific sound-and-light environment that was conceived for Dia by Young, Zazeela, and Choi. The work will include a new configuration of its traditional elements—Young’s sine-wave sound environment and Zazeela’s light environment—and will incorporate a new version of Choi’s installation Ahata Anahata, Manifest Unmanifest IX.
