Each performance includes three consecutive episodes, transitioning through the layered references that inform their collaborative work—from the musical structures of polyphonic singing, through the transcendent dance of Sylphides (2009), to the recent ensemble work Dub Love (2014).

Free with admission. No reservations required.
In conjunction with the installation of Hanne Darboven’s Kulturgeschichte 1880–1983 (Cultural History 1880–1983, 1980–83), Dia Art Foundation presents four performances of Darboven’s musical compositions for double bass. Completed in 1984, Wunschkonzert is both a large-scale visual installation and a four-part musical score for double bass, featuring Opus 17A, Opus 17B, Opus 18A, and Opus 18B. Opus 17A was first presented at the 1996 opening of Cultural History 1880–1983 at Dia Center for the Arts. In addition to Opus 17A, Robert Black, who performed the work in 1996, performs the three companion pieces—Opus 17B, Opus 18A, and Opus 18B. All four concerts take place within the installation at Dia:Chelsea to allow visitors to experience a live performance of Darboven’s musical work within the all-encompassing visual impact of her installation.
