Free Screening: People Museum
Sat, January 7th at 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Want to revisit People Museum’s Louise Bourgeois–inspired performance in the Besthoff Sculpture Garden? Join for a free screening of the full performance on Saturday, January 7, 1 pm, in NOMA’s Lapis Center for the Arts.
During the one-night-only presentation last December, New Orleans–based pop art band People Museum performed their latest EP Destruction of, Vol. 1 underneath Bourgeois’s Spider—one of the signature works in the sculpture garden. Written by Claire Givens and produced by Jeremy Phipps, Destruction of, Vol. 1 features a collection of songs inspired by Bourgeois’s life and work, and the performance was timed with the exhibition Louise Bourgeois: Paintings, which was on view at NOMA from September 9 to December 31, 2022.
This screening is free with advanced registration.
