PopRally invites you to a special performance by the celebrated Icelandic band Sigur Rós, in conjunction with the exhibition Take your time: Olafur Eliasson.
Featuring thirty-eight works installed at both MoMA and P.S.1, Take your time explores the highly experimental work of Olafur Eliasson, whose immersive environments and large-scale installations elegantly recreate the extremes of landscape and atmosphere in his native Iceland. Eliasson’s work recontextualizes elements such as light, water, ice, fog, stone, and moss to create unique situations that shift viewers' perceptions of place and self.
Sigur Rós creates ethereal, transcendent music that often induces a feeling of wonderment—a stirring accompaniment to Eliasson's explorations of space, color, and illumination.
This event includes an exclusive viewing of Take your time, which closes to the public on June 30.
Special thanks to Grolsch, Reyka Vodka, Fred, and GuS–Grown-up Soda.
