Curated by Augustin Maurs, “ENCORES – music on recurrence, redundancy and surplus” is the third concert presented by artgenève/musique featuring the participation of contemporary artists. The programme takes place on May 9, 2019, on the occasion of the 58th International Art Exhibition at The Goldoni Theatre, in Venice, featuring performances by Saâdane Afif, Hsia-Fei Chang, Pierre Huyghe, Yutaka Makino, Jonathan Monk, Annika Larsson / Satch Hoyt and Anri Sala.
The performed pieces draw inspiration from the notion of “encore”, the repeated performance requested by the audience after the end of a concert. The invited artists takes the concept as starting point to explore different patterns of reiteration, mutation or change, often refering already existing works or well-known political events.
