CLARK ART INSTITUTE HOSTS MUSIC BY DJ SHAKI TO CELEBRATE MEANDER EXHIBITION
Williamstown, Massachusetts—On Saturday, July 30 at 3:30 pm, the Clark Art Institute hosts live music at the Lunder Center at Stone Hill featuring DJ Shaki. The afternoon of music complements Tauba Auerbach and Yuji Agematsu: Meander and is presented in collaboration with Belltower Records.
Following curator Robert Wiesenberger’s opening lecture for Tauba Auerbach and Yuji Agematsu: Meander at 2 pm in the Clark’s auditorium, visitors are invited to meander up to the Lunder Center’s Moltz Terrace and join DJ Shaki (Rick Omonte) for an afternoon of pan-Latinx grooves on the patio. Hailing from New Haven, Connecticut, Omonte produced the highly acclaimed weekly concert series Shaki Presents at BAR, which ran for eight years and now appears monthly on Bridgeport’s community radio station WPKN 89.5fm. Come by for a healthy dose of cumbia, chicha, festejo, marinera, and more!
Free; no registration is required. Bring your own refreshments and snacks. For more information, visit clarkart.edu/events.
