Project Description


February 1 – May 25

Artists,musicians, and co-curators of the exhibition Angus McCullough, Jake Nussbaum, and Adam Tinkle bring new life to old instruments. Each musical instrument in the Bennington Museum collection has its own unique story, but have remained silent for decades. McCullough, Nussbaum, and Tinkle work with the museum’s curatorial staff to meet the instruments where they are, using their current state to generate new sounds. The exhibit explores the histories and traditional sounds of the instruments and provides opportunities to hear them brought back to life in new compositions.
