CALL FOR MUSICIANS AND SOUND ARTISTS

About

The PHI Foundation for Contemporary Art invites musicians and sound artists to apply to take part in an evening of performances entitled The Plateaux of Mirror, taking place on March 2, 2024 from 8 PM to midnight. Organized in conjunction with artist Rirkrit Tiravanija’s exhibition JOUEZ/PLAY, this event is inspired by drone sleepovers. For the performance, the space will be transformed into a cocoon where visitors can nap and relax with their own pillows and blankets. 

During the evening, five thirty-minute performances will be presented in Rirkrit Tiravanija’s artwork, untitled 1996 (rehearsal studio no. 6). The artwork consists of a reproduction of a rehearsal room where Tiravanija and his friends used to meet to play music, and in which musical instruments can be found. 

All musical genres are welcome (electronic music, jazz, minimal kraut, space music, dub, sound art, etc.). A fee will be offered to those selected.
