Doug Aitken's MIRROR will be unveiled at Seattle Art Museum Sun. March 24 from 6:30 pm-7:30 pm. This is a permanent art installation that will adhere to the façade of SAM. Learned people predict that this work will become a Seattle landmark.
MIRROR is an urban earthwork that changes in real time in response to the movements and life around it. At the unveiling, guests will experience an unprecedented performance with synchronized choreography of MIRROR in relation to compositions by minimalist composers Steve Reich and Terry Riley. Mr. Riley will be in Seattle for the performance of his monumental work In C, featuring musicians from the Seattle Symphony Orchestra and Stuart Dempster, faculty at the University of Washington School of Music, who performed with Riley for the original debut of In C in 1964.
