FINISSAGE 20:00–21:00

Concert with alva noto

Saturday the 22nd of October the much acclaimed Carsten Nicolai exhibition at Copenhagen Contemporary comes to an end. On this occasion CC gives you the rare opportunity to experience the artist playing live under his musician alias alva noto.

October 22nd 2016 from 20.00 to 21.00 at Copenhagen Contemporary, Papirøen.

Because of the great interest that has been shown for the light and sound installation unidisplay by the German artist and musician Carsten Nicolai, the new art center Copenhagen Contemporary has chosen to extend the exhibition period until the 22nd of October. On the electronic music scene, Carsten Nicolai is known as alva noto and on the final night of the exhibition, CC has the pleasure of welcoming you to a unique concert by alva noto. The concert takes place in the raw settings of Hall 4 at CC.

Carsten Nicolai works in the intersection between art, music, mathematics and science. Thus, with this finissage concert CC presents the union of the musician alva noto and the artist Carsten Nicolai.
During the concert new visual patters will be generated live in sync with the electronic sounds, creating the visual background for the concert. In front of the installation alva noto will convert the sounds into waves and geometrical forms in an overwhelming visual universe.

The ticketprice is 100 DKK. And can be purchased in advance at Billetlugen. The possibly remaining tickets will be sold at the door on the evening.

The concert starts at 20pm, but please do come ealier as the ticket also gives access to CC’s open exhibitions with Bruce Nauman (US), Ragnar Kjartansson (IS), Yoko Ono (JP) and Pettersen & Hein (NO / DK).

‘unidisplay’ by Carsten Nicolai ends the 22th of October at 1pm.
