In anticipation of Art21 (Season 1) artist Louise Bourgeois‘ full-career retrospective, the Guggenheim Museum in New York presents a free concert on Saturday evening, June 21 titled Louise Bourgeois—Songs Remembered. Bourgeois, a Paris-born, NY-based artist, chose her favorite music and songs by musicians including Debussy and Billie Holiday as well as French standards such as C’est Si Bon by Jean Sablon. Metro accordionist Francois Parisi will travel from Paris to perform these selections, along with traditional Parisian street music.
The concert will take place on the sidewalk on 5th Avenue and 89th Street and is part of the museum’s popular series Works & Process, in collaboration with Make Music New York, an organization that presents over 850 free concerts across the city, once a year on the summer solstice.
