Elysian Fields: A Proposal from the Purple Institute.


Under the aegis of the Purple Institute, "a record label for the field of contemporary creation"--leave it to the French!--Elein Fleiss and Olivier Zahm apply the same fashion-fiction-sex formula that won attention for their Paris-based magazine Purple to an exhibition of works by some fifty artists and musicians exploring the subject of dreams. A series of pavilions will house creations by participants as diverse as Gerhard Richter, Sandra Cinto, and Alex Bag, accompanied by a sound track that boasts contributions from Sonic Youth, Tom Verlaine, and Jim O'Rourke. Swaddled m royal purple, the Elysian show may dethrone a few institutional pieties. A CD accompanies the 400-page illustrated catalogue, wholly unencumbered by text. May 24-July 24.
