William Kentridge: More Sweetly Play the Dance Music history talk and concert Performed by: Áron Tálas/Kornél Mogyoró and his band Dance and music are a crucial part of William Kentridge’s installation titled More Sweetly Play the Dance. Melodies arranged for African instruments and a characteristically African sound can be heard in several places of the project. How have African musical traditions and rhythms influenced contemporary light music? How did jazz and blues draw on African music? Which are the most interesting African instruments? Answers will be sought for these questions at the exhibition’s accompanying event: the musical evening of Áron Tálas/Kornél Mogyoró awaiting the audience with curiosities from the history of music.
Neo contemporary art space
The mission of the NEO Contemporary Art Space is to become an exhibition space for the world's most significant contemporary artists in the Városliget, Budapest. If we are looking for an international parallel, perhaps the Serpentine Gallery in Kensington Gardens in London is closest to NEO’s mission: in terms of location, appearance and function.
The Neo Contemporary Art Space in Budapest presents for the first time William Kentridge's eight-channel video installation More Sweetly Play the Dance (2015). The artwork was purchased in 2017 by the Museum of Fine Arts as one of the most significant contemporary works of the institution.
