Marfa Dialogues

Kurt Wagner of Lambchop

DJ DAMON LOCKS

27 September 2008


Opening in the fall of 2008 is The Marfa Sessions, Ballroom Marfa’s first exhibition devoted to artists working with sound. To celebrate the opening weekend, the legendary Kurt Wagner of Lambchop will perform on Saturday, 27 September, at the Capri in Marfa, Texas. DJ Damon Locks will follow.

Considered a context-specific exhibition with sound, The Marfa Sessions includes installed sound environments and acoustic spaces; visual artworks with an integral aural element; and sound by visual artists who usually work in other media. This interdisciplinary approach to sound art entails positing artists who are not usually thought of as “Sound Artists” alongside artists who are established in the field, and gives way to as many different interpretations of sound as it does for place.
