Ragnar Kjartansson: The Visitors

In a decaying 200-year-old upstate farmhouse this Icelandic artist assembled a group of 9 musicians to collaborate on an emotional and moving piece of music based on ABBA’s last album, The Visitors. Each musician is shot in one room and shown on a different screens in the gallery, but the piece is held together by the soundtrack. It’s a highly-styled video performance piece that runs the emotional gamut from melancholy to joy. I stayed for the full 53 minutes and left with a feeling of pure pleasure, an exhilarating sensation that most theater, art or performance rarely achieves.

Through March 16
