Dia Art Foundation will present a newly acquired, site-specific iteration of Dream House by La Monte Young, Marian Zazeela, and Jung Hee Choi at 545 West 22nd Street in New York City from June 16 to October 24. Titled Dia 15 VI 13 545 West 22 Street Dream House, the sound-and-light installation includes Young's sine-wave sound environment, Zazeela's sculptures and light design, and Choi's installation Ahata Anahata, Manifest Unmanifest IX.
Young, a crucial figure in the historical emergence of Minimalist music, is among the most influential representatives of the American avant-garde. He began using sustained tones and expanded concepts of time in the 1950s and formulated the Dream House concept with Zazeela in 1962. Together, they have developed numerous sound-and-light installations and performances, among which Dream House stands as the essential environment for their time-based performances. A program of performances will accompany the presentation of Dia 15 VI 13 545 West 22 Street Dream House. The first performance will take place on June 13, at 9pm. La Monte Young, Marian Zazeela, and Jung Hee Choi will lead the Just Alap Raga Ensemble as a tribute to Pandit Pran Nath.
