No reservations required.  In conjunction with the installation of Hanne Darboven’s Kulturgeschichte 1880–1983 (Cultural History 1880–1983, 1980–83), Dia Art Foundation presents four performances of Darboven’s musical compositions for double bass. Completed in 1984, Wunschkonzert is both a large-scale visual installation and a four-part musical score for double bass, featuring Opus 17A, Opus 17B, Opus 18A, and Opus 18B. Opus 17A was first presented at the 1996 opening of Cultural History 1880–1983 at Dia Center for the Arts. In addition to Opus 17A, Robert Black, who performed the work in 1996, will perform the three companion pieces—Opus 17B, Opus 18A, and Opus 18B. All four concerts will take place within the installation at Dia:Chelsea to allow visitors to experience a live performance of Darboven’s musical work within the all-encompassing visual excess of her installation. Robert BlackRobert Black is a musician and composer for the solo double bass who collaborates with actors, artists, composers, dancers, musicians, and technophiles from all walks of life. He is a founding and current member of the musical group Bang on a Can All-Stars. Current projects include a Philip Glass commission for a seven-movement solo partita, which includes recited poetry by seven of downtown New York’s most illustrious musicians and poets, and Possessed, a series of solo improvisatory performances in Utah’s rugged landscape. His CD recordings include State of the Bass (O. O. Discs, 1994), Christian Wolff: Look She Said (Complete Works for Bass) (Mode Records, 2002), Giacinto Scelsi: The Works for Double Bass (Mode Records, 2008), and Modern American Bass (New World Records, 2011), in addition to sixteen recordings for Bang on a Can All-Stars (Cantaloupe Records). Black teaches at the Hartt School at the University of Hartford in Connecticut, Manhattan School of Music in New York, and the Festival Eleazar de Carvalho in Brazil.     Dia:Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SA;UNTIL=20170729T235900; Hanne Darboven, Opus 17A

Previous books include North River Rundown (Accent Editions, 2012), Surrender When Leaving Coach (Hanging Loose Press, 2012), Learning from New Jersey (Talisman House, 2007), Vertical’s Currency (Talisman House, 1999), and House Rent Boogie (Yellow Press, 1992). He edited Bluestones and Salt Hay (Rutgers University Press, 1990), an anthology of contemporary New Jersey poets, as well as On the Level Everyday (Talisman House, 1997), the selected talks of Ted Berrigan, and Reality Prime (Talisman House, 1998), the selected poems of Walter Lowenfels. A social worker by day, he has taught creative writing at the Poetry Project, Rutgers University, and Writer’s Voice. And, for better or worse, he initiated the ill-fated New Jersey Poet Laureate position that was such a headache for Amiri Baraka. With his wife, Rutgers University cinema professor Sandy Flitterman-Lewis, he resides in Hoboken. At The Bohemian Embassy           Bare red balloon in the foyer           She has no words except “I'll be there”.           But what have I signed up for?           Warps of estrangement?          “Your paintings of mind-blistering cold snow..."           Borrow what you can           Night-kissing bitter Turkish cigarettes           Of new information & the blur of freaked pigeons            Your scheme to condo heating grates….           Seems that nerves do the walking           Or large as a lake that burned.                                        Edwin TorresEdwin Torres came to poetry through performance art in New York City’s East Village in the early 1990s. The neighborhood’s diversity in addition to the combined forces of Dixon Place, Nuyorican Poets Café, and St. Marks Poetry Project shaped his multidisciplinary approach to language. His books include Ameriscopia (University of Arizona Press, 2014), Yes Thing No Thing (Roof Books, 2010), and The PoPedology of an Ambient Language (Atelos, 2007). Fellowships include the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, New York Foundation for Arts, and Poetry Fund. Anthologies include Angels of the Americlypse: New Latin@ Writing (Counterpath Press, 2014), Postmodern American Poetry (W. W. Norton & Company, 2013), and Aloud; Voices From The Nuyorican Poets Café (Holt, 1994). In 2017, Torres will serve as a fellow in the Center for Programs in Contemporary Writing at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. He is a member of the electro-lingo band Sowndhaus, and lives in Beacon, New York, with his wife and son.  TADPOLE AT STARLIGHTa small infinityhas appeared on the crest of ignition                                                                        a curve for all things stolen             a swipe at things that magnify                          i was infinite for a momenttraveled inside lightless eye                                    rode a width across a legion's pupil            molded by something closer than free                          about to crash into a million yearsif i could just leave the floating to smaller bugs                                   my fingers now closed my eyes hovering            over my keys over each letter                          my frogs looking to land on soft ground                                     that's all we want, isn't it a launchpad over stellar indications of messy instability                                    or maybe a drain to edit                          to take the universal                                     out of in            for all things balanced                                  on lunar surf the circumstance of delicate cognition                        telegraphs a step — let me go up to you,            now warm in the place i remember, and tired                                               — do you know how — you ask, your answer                                    the one i start with       Dia:Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SA;UNTIL=20170729T235900; Joel Lewis and Edwin Torres
