For form/FIGURE, we curate art, fashion, and music that take a direct cue from established or traditional elements. Musicians will wear garments by fashion designer Gigi Burris, who draws inspiration from 1930’s icons Elsa Schiaparelli and Isabella Blow in creating her elegantly disheveled pieces. Edward Lorenz adds a modern edge to extremely classic men’s wear. Artist Chris Rini takes historical New York City architecture and saturates it in bright colors. The musical selections on this program utilize forms and styles that stem from the past. This concert offers examples of how perspectives on fixed things can still change over time.
Publicity for $1?! Your name in lights (ok, more like in ink on quality paper) at our next event! Details here.
Join us tonight for Barber Souvenirs, Ravel Piano Trio in a minor, and the New York Premiere of Thomas Osborne’s Furioso-Vendetta. And fashion inspired by these pieces of music, made out of Louis Vuitton samples!
Models: sit back and enjoy the show, you won’t be working tonight. The clothes will be worn instead by the musicians.
Take a break from an average Friday night. Get tickets here.
I like wearing the Nouveau Classical Project shirt around town. This shirt just happens to suit my taste, and I guess the printed big black block letters declaring, “CLASSICAL MUSIC IS DEAD,” are pretty hard to ignore. The shirt roughly resembles other popular tees with slogans such as, “Make Love Not War,” or “I’m with Stupid.” I cut it in to a muscle tee of sorts. You know, to show off my buff piano arms in a punk-rock sort of way.
