OPERA

Curator:
Lia Trinka-Browner

Artists:
Lesley Moon
Jill Specotor
Brendan Threadgill
Calvin Trezise
Dawson Weber

PR: “Opera will pretend that it is written down, immutable, and immortal—that it has the status, the absoluteness, of law. But do not believe the ruse. Opera is an ideal, unattainable condition, projected on the culture’s scrim like Oz above the poppies…To this day, I grow morose and lethargic when I contemplate opera’s utopian task of uniting words with music, as if I were pushing against a mountain with my palm.” -Wayne Koestenbaum
