We are pleased to announce David Zink Yi's new exhibition 'Being the measure’ in collaboration with Angie Keefer. The show consists of a single performance, which will take place in the nave on the opening day, and an ongoing video installation in the chapel.


‘Being the measure’ brings together minimalist sculptural and musical forms based on Zink Yi’s intensive research of Afro-Cuban musical contexts with a spoken word score composed by Keefer, regarding opposing physiological and philosophical concepts of being and knowing. 

For the performance, Zink Yi will be joined by preeminent Cuban musicians Marvin Diz (New York), Adonis Panter Calderon (Cuba), Alain Perez (Cuba/Spain), and Regis Molina (Berlin). Together, they will activate Zink Yi’s constellation of percussive sculptures to generate an improvised polyrhythmic composition permeated by Keefer’s text. 

A video work created from footage captured in the nave during the initial development of the performance in 2016 will be projected in the chapel.

The performance takes place on August 24th. Objects from the performance will be on view until August 26th. The video work will be on view until September 23, 2018.

‘Being the measure’ was commissioned by Williams College Museum of Art (WCMA), where it was first performed for a live audience in late 2016.
