Getty Museum, Los Angeles
For this Sunday event, L.A. native Mandy Kahn presents a selection of immersive pieces that interact with the architecture of the Getty courtyards and feature a cast of singers and performers.
Kahn is the author of two poetry collections, Glenn Gould’s Chair and Math, Heaven, Time. Her poetry is included in The Best American Poetry 2018 and was featured in former U.S. Poet Laureate Ted Kooser’s newspaper column American Life in Poetry. She frequently collaborates with composers to create new works that combine verse and classical music and was a librettist for Yuval Sharon’s acclaimed 2015 opera Hopscotch.
