In conjunction with the city-wide and world-wide celebration of Steve Reich’s 70th birthday, the Whitney presents Three Tales by Beryl Korot and Steve Reich. Reflecting on the dramatic impact technology has exerted on life in the twentieth century, this sound and video work contemplates three definitive historical moments: the 1937 Hindenburg crash, the nuclear bomb tests at the Bikini atoll in 1949, and the cloning of sheep “Dolly” in 1997.
