Jen Shyu at Dominique Lévy Gallery

Through a serendipitous intersection in my life, my work at Dominique Lévy Gallery has evolved to include occasional music programming, and on June 7th we will present the phenomenal Jen Shyu in a performance of her Solo Rites: Seven Breaths. I saw this gorgeous and intense piece premiered at Roulette in 2014 and thought it would be a wonderful compliment to the first U.S. solo exhibition and career survey of the Korean, monochrome artist Chung Sang-Hwa, presented in collaboration between Dominique Lévy Gallery and Greene Naphtali Gallery. This is a FREE event with RSVP to mackie@dominique-levy.com

“She has drawn large parts of her music from travel and study in places including East Timor, Taiwan and Indonesia, where she has learned spoken languages, folk narratives, dances and instrumental techniques… There’s great erudition in her work, but she wears it lightly; what you notice, both in her singing and her band-leading, is wild originality, purpose and discipline.” – The New York Times
