Visual Music will survey the charged and profoundly generative relationship between art and music over the last century. Focusing specifically on the connections between color and sound, Visual Music brings together many of the major movements and masterpieces of modern and contemporary art, and demonstrates their relationship to musical forms as varied as classical, jazz, rock, and electronica. This exhibition is organized by MOCA Director Jeremy Strick in collaboration with the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C. Visual Music is co-organized by the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C. and The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. Visual Music: 1905-2005 is made possible through the generous support of Audrey M. Irmas; Geraldine and Harold Alden; Cynthia A. Miscikowski and Douglas R. Ring; and Mandy and Cliff J. Einstein.
