The Broad Announces Summer Programming: Late-Night Music And Performance Happenings, Plus A Cindy Sherman Related Film Series

To celebrate The Broad’s first summer, the museum today announced two major public programming series, inspired by artists in the Broad collection and The Broad’s first special exhibition, Cindy Sherman: Imitation of Life. The late-night series Nonobject(ive): Summer Happenings at The Broad will animate important influences of leading contemporary artists through music and performance, fluctuating between happenings, salons and scenes. The film series Doll Parts, inspired by Cindy Sherman’s darker works, will examine the iconography of the artist’s photographic practice, showcasing influences, like minds and apparent heirs to her evolving body of work.

Co-curated by independent curator and writer Bradford Nordeen and director of editorial operations at Pitchfork Brandon Stosuy, theNonobject(ive): Summer Happenings at The Broad series will be held one Saturday night a month and will occupy various spaces throughout the museum and public outdoor plaza. A constellation of thrilling musicians, performers and multimedia artists will take their thematic calling from the many guises of Cindy Sherman, as well as Pop art and works of the 1980s and 1990s that helped shape the underground, rave and downtown Manhattan cultures. The series features performances by Rostam Batmanglij, the Haxan Cloak (DJ Set), Richard Hell, Perfume Genius, Sophie and more. Tickets to Nonobject(ive): Summer Happenings also include access to the museum, including the Cindy Sherman special exhibition.

Also curated by Bradford Nordeen, the Doll Parts film series will take place every other Thursday night throughout the summer in The Broad’s Oculus Hall. The series looks to reframe the Cindy Sherman exhibition, expanding on ideas present in Sherman’s work through an innovative program of international films, artists’ tapes and music videos. Film highlights include Sherman’s Office Killer, Douglas Sirk’s Imitation of Life (for which the Cindy Sherman exhibition was named), Maya Deren’s Meshes of the Afternoon, Nobuhiko Obayashi’sHausu and many more. Tickets to the Doll Parts films also include same-night access to the Cindy Sherman exhibition.

Tickets for Nonobject(ive): Summer Happenings at The Broad and the Doll Parts film series will go on sale on the 15th of each month for the following month.
