On Thursday, July 16, 2020 at 4:30pm Pacific / 7:30pm Eastern, Works & Process at the Guggenheim will present a virtual program featuring premieres of two new commissions related to composer Lisa Bielawa’s ongoing project, Broadcast from Home, a significant new musical work launched by Bielawa in April 2020, which creates community during the isolation of the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis by featuring contributions from the public. Works & Process has commissioned Bielawa to compose Chapter 15 of Broadcast from Home, as part of their Works & Process Artists (WPA) Virtual Commissions series, a response to the pandemic to provide financial and creative support for artists during these challenging times. Anthony Hawley has created a film response to Chapter 4 of Broadcast from Home. Both new works will be premiered during this free, online event. The program also includes a discussion with Bielawa, Hawley, and Broadcast from Home participants Oriana Hawley and Gregory Purnhagen, moderated by project archivist Claire Solomon.
