+ Musical Chairs +
December 8 - 22 View Schedule
720 Geary, SF

Magic Carpet is a pop up gallery, whose first physical location will be 720 Geary, San Francisco. Artist and curator Aimee Friberg is working with musicians, visual, sound and film artists, producers and other curators to produce MUSICAL CHAIRS, a rotating exhibit of artworks, performances and short films all made within, or in relation to, the context of sound and experimental music. For many cultures, music is a conduit to religious experience, a spiritual connection, or transformative moment into a world of the unknown. MUSICAL CHAIRS explore this territory of the ethereal—by provoking cosmic, magical, and spirit based connections through sound and music based art experiences.
