Stephin Merritt is going to be part of an upcoming exhibit at The Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston called The Romance Studies. Mr. Merritt is collaborating on the project with visual artist Ali Naschke-Messing and choreographer Rashaun Mitchell. The Romance Studies premiers January 2014.
In the mean time, however, you can purchase tickets for a sneak preview of the residency here. During this preview, which will happen on July 18, the three will be sharing songs and ideas that will likely come to full fruition in the completed exhibit. Details of exactly what this will entail are scarce, but this is exciting nonetheless! If any of you gentle readers attend the preview, I would love to hear back a report!!
