The Drawing Center | 35 Wooster Street

Join us for a launch party celebrating the release of Xenakis Matters: Contexts, Processes, Applications, an anthology of responses by thirty scholars, artists, musicians, architects, musicologists, philosophers, and art historians to the work of experimental composer and architect Iannis Xenakis. Edited by Sharon Kanach and published by Pendragon Press, the book compiles documentation of the ambitious public programming around the Iannis Xenakis: Composer, Architect, Visionary exhibition’s tour in North America in 2010-11, which began at The Drawing Center.

The event will include guest speakers from among the contributors to Xenakis Matters: Joel Chadabe, Sharon Kanach, David Lieberman, Carey Lovelace, Robert Rowe, and Ronald Squibbs, as well as a performance by Robert Black, double bass.
