The Hammer Museum has announced its final lineup and schedule for ALL THE INSTRUMENTS AGREE, a two-day program of back-to-back live performances by over 25 local, national, and international sound artists, music collectives, art bands, and visual artists whose practices extend into the production of sound. Hyperallergic is proud to be the media sponsor.
Taking place on September 25 and 26, ALL THE INSTRUMENTS AGREE: an exhibition or a concert is conceived as an exhibition in the form of a concert. The continuous program of performances will alternate between two outdoor stages in the Hammer courtyard.
There will be a livestream of the event, and Hyperallergic will be in attendance all weekend with updates.
Spanning a range of influences, genres, and styles, participating artists include industrial music pioneer Genesis Breyer P-Orridge; Cairo-based artist Hassan Khan, whose live-mixed multitrack work “Taraban” will be performed for the first time in the US; and GLITTERBUST, a new project by Kim Gordon and Alex Knost.
Joining the already robust lineup of artists are:
- Martin Creed, British artist and musician who performs regularly and has released eight studio albums
- The Los Angeles-based band RIVOAH (Matthew Groves, Paul Macis, Analisa Rivera, Miranda Rivera, Steven Rivera), performing songs composed for lyrics contributed by the Mexico City–based artist Abraham Cruzvillegas
- French Vanilla, a feminist art-punk band consisting of Max Albeck, Ali Day, Sally Spitz, and Daniel Trautfield
- Artists Tobias Spichtig and Paolo Thorsen-Nagel, who use sound and voice in expected and unexpected ways
- Xina Xurner, a drag–noise–dance music and performance collaboration between Marvin Astorga and Young Joon Kwak
A full list of participating artists can be found at hammer.ucla.edu/instruments.
