Visual Music - Exhibition Moca

"Featuring masterpieces of modern and contemporary art, Visual Music offers for the first time in the United States a chronological exhibition of the relationship between abstraction, color, and music forms as varied as classical, jazz, rock, and electronic...

Rather than following a traditional progression of movements and styles, this exhibition presents successive explorations of the idea of synaesthesia. Artists from all over the world are inspired by the concept of synaesthesia, the experience of one sense evoking another, in this case exploring the union of the aural and visual senses. Visual Music explores this concept’s remarkable cross-pollination across time and medium and reveals how the multimedia installations produced today realize ambitions expressed by paintings made almost 100 years ago. Over 80 works, including important examples never before seen in the U.S., by over 40 internationally recognized artists of abstract painting, experimental cinema, and contemporary installation are featured.
