Marcus Fischer: Performance with Verbal Description and Touch Tour

Thurs, Aug 8, 2019
6:30–8 pm

Floor 3, Floor 5, Susan and John Hess Family Gallery and Theater

This performance by 2019 Biennial artist Marcus Fischer brings together signature aspects of his practice: textural soundscapes created from field recordings, found objects, and chance, along with tape loops and live instrumentation. The artist combines these elements to create an immersive sonic environment. 

Before the performance participants will explore the Whitney Biennial exhibition through a truncated Verbal Description and Touch Tour led by an expert educator. The program will be followed by a reception.

This event has reached capacity.

The Susan and John Hess Family Theater is equipped with an induction loop and infrared assistive listening system. Accessible seating is available.
