The Philadelphia Museum of Art (PMA) and The Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM) present Allora & Calzadilla: Intervals, the largest solo exhibition in the United States to date by the Puerto Rico–based collective.
This two-part exhibition includes several new and recent projects, ranging from films and sculpture to sound pieces and performances. Since 1995, Jennifer Allora (born in 1974 in Philadelphia) and Guillermo Calzadilla (born in 1971 in Havana, Cuba) have worked in close collaboration on a conceptually rigorous body of work that focuses on the intersections of history, material culture, and politics through a wide variety of media. The exhibition takes place across two sites: the Philadelphia Museum of Art and The Fabric Workshop and Museum.
Allora & Calzadilla note, “Intervals revels in the unknowable as essential to human experience. The exhibition bears witness to incomplete presences and resonant remainders. It finds in music a measure and a reckoning with these elusive forces and the abyss that lies between.”
Members from The Crossing, a professional chamber choir dedicated to new music, will perform Allora & Calzadilla’s new vocal work “Lifespan” at The Fabric Workshop and Museum seven days a week at 1pm, 2pm, and 3pm, with some exclusion dates and time variations. For a full schedule of events and exhibition performances, visit philamuseum.org and fabricworkshopandmuseum.org.
At PMA, this exhibition is part of the Live Cinema series. At FWM, Allora & Calzadilla have created new work through its Artist-in-Residence Program.
