The first program in the Nonobject(ive): Summer Happenings at The Broad series was inspired by The Broad’s Cindy Sherman: Imitation of Life special exhibition. The evening of performance and music featured the lush beauty of Perfume Genius’s orchestrations and the ever-changing masked choreography of Narcissister. In the spirit of Cindy Sherman’s photographs, performance collective Mutant Salon transformed visitors’ hair, make-up, and minds in a lavish pop-up beauty parlor and hive for creative collaboration and self-care. Lotic created dark beats in The Broad’s distinctive architecture, and Cindytalk performed electronic soundscapes that blended rhythmic dissonance with ethereal vocals.

About Summer Happenings at The Broad 2016

Nonobject(ive): Summer Happenings at The Broad is a series of late-night music, performance and spoken word that will take place one Saturday night a month from June through September 2016. Nonobject(ive) takes inspiration from objects in the Broad collection while shifting focus towards the immersive and immaterial, including performance, dance, music and spoken word. Occupying various spaces throughout the museum and plaza, Nonobject(ive) will orchestrate a constellation of thrilling musicians, performers and multi-media artists taking their thematic calling from pop artists, artists who shaped the 80s and 90s underground and rave scenes and downtown Manhattan cultures, and the many guises of special exhibition artist, Cindy Sherman, whose work will be featured in The Broad’s first special exhibition Cindy Sherman: Imitation of Life. These events fluctuate between happening, salon and scene and will animate important influences of the leading artists of our time.
