RoseLee Goldberg in Conversation with artist Robin Rhode at NeueHouse Madison Square
Performa founding director and chief curator RoseLee Goldberg talks with South African artist Robin Rhode about his Performa 15 Commission, Arnold Schönberg’s Erwartung. A solo singer and assembled 20-member orchestra performed a version of the one-act 1909 opera, changing the story to be about how South African women were affected by the migrant labor system of apartheid that separated them from their husbands. The project, which was staged in Times Square, was filmed from multiple vantage points, and the recording was recently released.
