November 17: The Mapping Arts / Lab#4
Guest: Nina Katchadourian (4:00 – 5:30)
Nina has informed me that one of her early sound-map pieces — “Songs of the Islands: Concrete Music from New York” — is currently on view in the “New York, I Love You, But…” show at NYU Gallatin, in the ground floor gallery at 1 Washington Place (turn left upon entering the building).
