In a move the Metropolitan Museum of Art calls unprecedented, the venerable museum is launching what it calls The Met Reframed: DJ Spooky in Residence.
The writer, composer and multimedia artist, also known as Paul D. Miller ’92, is to be the museum’s artist-in-residence from October 2012 through June 2013. During that time, DJ Spooky will collaborate with the museum’s education department on workshops and gallery discussions, and will also present five performance events.
“For me, it’s such an honor to work with the Met from the viewpoint of sampling,” says Miller.
“I want to make a vibrant reflection of this incredible collection of materials from all over the world. My residency will be a fun festival of ideas. From the South Pacific to Asia, from the Civil War to 3D photography, from Antarctica to environmental activism, I want to show that music and art are always in dialogue.”
