Unknown Pleasures

Aspen Art Museum, Aspen

Group show

comunicato stampa

Music has become both an aesthetic device and an important touchstone for many artists, and uses of emotive and psychological properties of sound also coincide with a current reinvestigation of the romantic notion of melancholy—historically identified as a state of malaise, disaffection, and inactivity. Unknown Pleasures features a number of international contemporary artists working in a variety of media, who explore the connections between music and melancholy, but instead focus on its generative potential.

Along with works in the AAM Upper Gallery and outdoor installations on the museum grounds, Unknown Pleasures will also feature a listening station devoted to musical recordings and albums produced by artists exploring the interrelationship of contemporary art and music.

Artists featured in the exhibition include Sanford Biggers, Anne Collier, Jesper Just, Tim Lee, Euan Macdonald, Susan Philipsz, Ugo Rondinone, Melanie Schiff, and Wilhelm Sasnal.

Unknown Pleasures is organized by the Aspen Art Museum and funded in part by the AAM National Council. AAM Art Talks are part of the Questrom Lecture Series.
