About This Program
SPCO Artistic Partner and violinist Pekka Kuusisto brings his craft to the Walker Art Center galleries for a rare solo performance inspired by themes of I am you, you are too. Kuusisto leads the audience in Pauline Oliveros’ Tuning Meditation, part of a series of works written to provide healing in response to the political chaos of the late 1960s. This interactive performance invites participants to engage in listening as an act of peaceful activism in our own tumultuous political climate. Further exploration of the exhibit’s themes is presented through a set of virtual duos in which Kuusisto is joined via video projections and sound recordings by international artist-collaborators who collaborate across time and space in the face of new U.S. immigration restrictions.
“A violinist whose rare gift is to become rather than perform the music he plays.” – The Guardian
