The DMA premieres a newly commissioned musical, Jiro, Digital Painting, by New York–based performance artist Ei Arakawa, together with writer Dan Poston and composer David Zuckerman, inspired by the exhibition Between Action and the Unknown: The Art of Kazuo Shiraga and Sadamasa Motonaga. Arakawa’s work takes shape as choreographed gatherings, along the lines of Happenings, in which the artist interacts with and reinterprets particular art objects or art historical moments. Arakawa’s performances rely on both an openness to collaboration and audience participation. He aligns his work with the performative legacies of Japanese experimental art, such as Gutai, Jikken Kobo, and Fluxus, which he explores anew through his interpretive practice. The performance features Kim Hoang, Eliel Jones, and Fabian Leyva-Barragan.
