Sympathy For The Devil, One Plus One
Adam Pendleton’s multi-disciplinary and irreverent practice finds fertile ground in his new work, BAND. In a part performance, rock show, installation and film screening, this cutting edge New York artist refashions Sympathy for the Devil, Jean-Luc Godard’s 1968 film paean to The Rolling Stones and the Black Panthers, into a contemporary art happening.
Celebrated indie art-rock/post-punk band Deerhoof will be at the center of the action. Their own rehearsal footage, shot in Toronto, and images from the original film will be crosscut during a free live concert at Yonge-Dundas Square which will, in turn, be filmed with interventions from Pendleton.
Curated by Wayne Baerwaldt and produced in collaboration with the Illingworth Kerr Gallery at the Alberta College of Art + Design, Calgary, The Kitchen, New York and de Appel, Amsterdam.
September 17 from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. at Yonge-Dundas Square.
