Gamelatron: Bodyphones Outside Exhibit

March 20, 2020 - February 18, 2021

Bodyphones is an immersive installation by Aaron Taylor Kuffner (1975), an American-born conceptual artist, based in New York. The artwork’s mission is to expand the legacy and creative cultural power of the traditional Indonesian instrument called the gamelan. Kuffner uses exhibitions of the Gamelatrons to create sanctuaries both in public and private spaces. He views the body of the work as an offering to the observer.

 

Academy Art Museum is closed to the public due to the health emergency.  The Academy Art Museum will re-open at a later date.
