MoMa To Unveil Meditation of Light
Taking on the flashy role of music producer, MoMA has commissioned a new work by Antony and the Johnsons, Swanlights, to be performed at Radio City Music Hall for one night only on 26 January. For the piece, which the museum has described as “a meditation on light, nature, and femininity”, the British singer is collaborating with the light artist Chris Levine, lighting designer Paul Normandale and set designer Carl Robertshaw. PS1 maestro and MoMA chief curator at large Klaus Biesenbach originally wanted to commission the work for MoMA’s atrium, but the scope of the project soon became too large for the museum. Next stop: Madison Square Garden?
