The band has collaborated with artist Ragnar Kjartansson to produce  an art installation called “A Lot Of Sorrow.”

They will perform “Sorrow” for six hours at Moma PS1 in Long Island City, New York on May 5 from 12pm-6pm.

A press release from the gallery reads:

“By stretching a single pop song into a day-long tour de force the artist continues his explorations into the potential of repetitive performance to produce sculptural presence within sound.

As in all of Kjartansson’s performances, the idea behind A Lot of Sorrow is devoid of irony, yet full of humour and emotion. It is another quest to find the comic in the tragic and vice versa.”

In other news, Bryce Dessner will be performing with Eighth Blackbird and Nico Muhly at the Museum of Contemporary Art April 30-May 1. More information and tickets can be found HERE
