Dallas Museum of Art presents Ragnar Kjartansson: Focus On
Photo by Elisabet Davids

A nine-channel video installation by Icelandic artist, Ragnar Kjartansson, loaned to the Dallas Museum of Art from the collection of Marguerite Hoffman. Each screen shows one of nine musicians playing a musical adaptation of a poem in different parts of the Rokeby Farm House in Hudson Valley, New York.

By nearing one screen, viewers can listen to individual performers, or, at a certain point in the installation, the viewer can listen to the entire ensemble. In addition to the video, the DMA will display a commissioned work from Hoffman’s collection of personal postcards that the artist wrote to her over the course of a year.
