Missy Raines at the Frist with Multimedia Artist Robbie Hunsinger in Kandinsky Inspired Installation
Time-based artist Robbie Lynn Hunsinger will debut “Blue-Yellow-Red,” a new installation based on Kandinsky’s approach to color. The piece will be on view in the museum’s Rechter Room from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday and during and after a Nov. 20 performance featuring bluegrass bassist Missy Raines.
Here’s what can be revealed: Beams of light will create bands of teal, yellow and red on the floor and a multichannel video projection will be shown on the far wall of the room. The videos are real-time visuals of music composed and performed by Hunsinger. “It’s a very high-tech example of synesthesia,” she said.
