The Broad presents its third edition of Summer Happenings at The Broad, a late night music and performance series sponsored by Leading Partner East West Bank.
Taking place the last Saturday night of each month (June – September), the series will showcase more than 35 prominent and emerging artists and performers over four events. Tickets, including Series Passes ($95 for all four Happenings – $25 savings), create-your-own ticket packages ($25 each for two or more Happenings – $5 savings on each event) and advance individual tickets ($30), are available now at www.thebroad.org/happenings.
Summer Happenings kicks off on June 30 with an evening inspired by The Broad’s new exhibition, A Journey That Wasn’t – opening the same day – which explores artists’ complex representations of time, nuancing assumptions about linear time through rhythm, repetition, duration, artifice and appropriation.
July’s Happening continues the museum’s year-long exploration of the legacy and influence of Broad collection artist Joseph Beuys. In August, The Broad will present an evening featuring a diverse range of Chinese artists, from contemporary classical to punk and pop musicians, to performance. The final night of Summer Happenings in September will return to the themes of A Journey That Wasn’t, exploring how artists manipulate time through memory, appropriation and repetition.
The 2018 Summer Happenings lineup features an extraordinary array of talent including: Gang Gang Dance, faUSt, Re-TROS, Kim Gordon + YoshimiO, Terry Riley, EYE, DJ Stretch Armstrong, Matmos, MIIIA, Banjee Ball + Ranika (formerly Kevin) JZ Prodigy, Asian Dope Boys + Aïsha Devi, Michael “5000” Watts, Total Freedom and Arto Lindsay.
The series is guest-curated by artist and Afropunk festival co-founder James Spooner, curator Ryu Takahashi, Brandon Stosuy, editor-in-chief at The Creative Independent, and Darin Klein, associate director of events and programs, with assistance for August’s program from Modern Sky USA’s Sijie Liu and composer, performer and curator Du Yun.
Made possible in part by the generous support of Leading Partner East West Bank.
