HOUSE MUSIC LISTENING 2
Art & Ideas: History of House
Wednesday, September 14. 7-9pm
Members $10 | Public $15

House music is an international genre of dance music that originated in the early 1980s. But House is more than a style of popular music: it is also a spirituality and a philosophy. Electronic equipment allowed House to take 1970s Funk and Disco and expand it to new emotional terrain. Using sampling techniques, House was a way of narrating cultural histories. The goal was to create a unique vibe inside the nightclub. This transcendent sense of togetherness is what we call "House".
Students will have an opportunity to hear a broad sampling of music accompanied by group discussion facilitated by Toronto-based artist and curator, Luis Jacob. Using painting, video, installation and photography, as well as actions in the public sphere, Luis Jacob's work invites a collision of meanings that destabilizes conventions of viewing, and opens possibilities for the creation of knowledge. Jacob has achieved an international reputation, with his work exhibited at the Taipei Biennial 2012; Generali Foundation, Vienna (2011); Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York (2010); The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery (2008); and Documenta12, Kassel (2007).
This workshop is inspired by a new exhibition by internationally acclaimed artist Theaster Gates. Taking over the fifth floor of the AGO's Contemporary Tower, Gates presents How to Build a House Museum (LINK TO EXHIBITION PAGE), a wide-ranging and experimental interrogation of the house museum - its legacy as monument, as historical narrative, as racial achievement and as a site of freedom. Organized as a series of symbolic houses dedicated to George Black, W. E. B. Du Bois, Frankie Knuckles and Muddy Waters, among others, the exhibition uses music, dance, signage, video, artworks and archival documents - many related to the Black and queer experience - to explore how and what museums communicate.
