A listening party at the museum

If you could listen to music while you browsed, would that change how you feel about art? Try it out at Theaster Gates’ installation, “Listening Room,” which opens today at Seattle Art Museum. Gates, a Chicago artist/collector who has some really interesting ideas about bringing people together, has re-created a now-defunct record store called Dr. Wax in this exhibition. The SAM space is a place where great music will be played by a DJ, and where visitors can select records to play, too. (FULL ARTICLE: Melissa Davis, The Seattle Times)
