ON VIEW

There is something for everybody in this chorus of sight and sound. Rare and important instruments like the Les Paul guitar that Keith Richards played on the Ed Sullivan show, a Gibson Flying V and a copy of Paganini’s legendary “Cannon” violin made by modern master Luiz Amorim are surrounded by manuscripts and memorabilia featuring Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, Joni Mitchell, Jimmy Webb, Bernie Taupin, Frank Zappa and an unforgettable portrait of Lady Gaga by Robert Wilson. Masterworks by Matisse, Degas, Vuillard, Feininger, Juan Gris, Romare Bearden, and Jasper Johns join important contemporary works by Idris Khan, Hassan Hajjaj, Malick Sidibé, Tim Rollins and KOS, Christine Sun Kim and many others. The enchantment of an installation of Aaron Taylor Kuffner’s Gamelatron, along with a veritable orchestra of wind, string and percussion instruments from Africa, Asia and the Middle East takes you beyond borders of time and geography into the deeply human creative space where art and music perform their timeless duet.

See and hear the Gamelatron

 Long Island’s Most Beautiful Space

A walk-in kinetic sculpture that turns the whole building into an instrument, the Gamelatron built for this show brings together music, art and technology in one astonishingly original installation. It is a sanctuary within the museum. As you listen to the gentle music for gongs and bells made of hammered bronze and gold, the gap between the rationality of design and the spiritual experience of the sublime is bridged. Visitors are enchanted by this brainchild of Aaron Taylor Kuffner, a remarkable artist whose five-year experience with gamelan players and metalworkers in Indonesia, along with his expertise in the engineering behind acoustics and automation, place him in a league of his own. Yet he modestly says: “I am just the vehicle. There are different ways of accessing resonance, and I should not be in the way.”
