Ari Benjamin Meyers

Bio

Born 1972 in New York, lives and works in Berlin.

Ari Benjamin Meyers’ work explores structures and processes that redefine the performative, social, and ephemeral nature of music. His conceptual projects and installations often draw attention to concrete details of music-making otherwise taken for granted and make tangible underlying conceptual operations. Recent works have addressed music scores themselves, forms and arrangements of musical instruments and ensembles, concert settings, and gestures of performers and conductors. At the same time, his compositions and performances seek to challenge the relationship between performer and audience, giving form to the practice of musicians and composers, and musical structures in the context of visual art.

Trained as a composer and conductor at The Juilliard School, Yale University, and The Peabody Institute at Johns Hopkins University, Ari Benjamin Meyers became more widely known in the context of the visual and performative arts in 2007 as musical director and conductor of the group exhibition Il Tempo del Postino, (Manchester International Festival, 2007 and Art Basel, 2009).

Meyers’s first institutional solo exhibition in Italy, In Concert, will fill the space of OGR – Officine Grandi Riparazioni from March 1 to April 14, 2019 with something that goes beyond music: a variety of social interactions and experiences.
