What's Coming to The Shed This Fall
As summer draws to a close, we find ourselves putting away our beach reads and blockbuster movies, craving denser, meatier entertainment. If you're unsure where to go, we recommend heading to The Shed, where a stellar lineup of visual arts, dance, music and more from top artists around the world is planned for the next few months. Our guide to the Fall program below.
Agnes Denes: "Absolutes and Intermediates" (Oct 9 - Jan 19) This comprehensive exhibit includes 150 works from the groundbreaking artist's 50-year career, including photography from her iconic "Wheatfield – A Confrontation" installation, when she farmed two acres of wheat in the then-empty landfill of Battery Park City in 1982.
William Forsythe, "A Quiet Evening of Dance" (Oct 11 - 25) Choreographer William Forsythe will present new and existing pieces, which will be performed by seven of his closest collaborators. The dancer's breath is the primary music to accompany the dancing, which draws from the styles of classical ballet.
"Requiem" at The Shed (Nov 19 - 24): See Verdi's masterpiece, "Messa da Requiem," performed two different ways. Conductor Teodor Currentzis will lead a live performance of the piece by a 105-seat orchestra and 80-member chorus. While a film set to the music by the late filmmaker Jonas Mekas will be screened in the Level 4 gallery.
