About this event:

Created by Katie Priest

2320 W Chicago Ave

 

WHAT: Pictures At An Exhibition is a performance piece designed by Jeff Yang, creator of In The Realm of Senses, who has combined different modes of art into a multi-sensory experience of sight, sound, taste, and smell.

SO WHAT: With original music written by Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky for solo piano on paintings of Viktor Hartmann, the orchestral version by Maurice Ravel has been revised to just two players on eight instruments; Jeff Yang on violin, viola, cello, four baroque recorders, and Lyudmila Kakisova on piano. Mussorgsky’s music will be paired with animated video based on the lost Hartmann paintings, scents provided by French perfumer Christophe Laudamiel, and sweets and libations by Chicago culinary destinations such as Band of Bohemia, Mango Pickle, and others.
