“Brion Gysin: Dream Machine”

Advertising

Time Out says

The Brit-born painter, poet, performer and inventor was a longtime friend and collaborator of William S. Burroughs's, and is best known, perhaps, for reviving the Surrealist technique of "cutting up" words and phrases to create sound pieces and texts. Gysin (1916–1986) was an early adopter of computer technology in art, and was also something of an éminence grise on the downtown scene, where he mentored such artists and performers as David Bowie, Patti Smith, Keith Haring and Genesis P-Orridge. This show is his first survey in a U.S. museum.
