Ragnar Kjartansson: Romantic Songs of the Patriarchy at The Women’s Building in San Fransisco
November 9-11, 2018

i8 Gallery is pleased to announce Ragnar Kjartansson’s Romantic Songs of the Patriarchy, a commissioned work for C Project’s inaugural event. The three-day durational musical performance that will be staged throughout the spaces of the Women’s Building in the Mission District of San Francisco on November 9th, 10th, and 11th, 2018.

The audience will encounter musicians performing familiar love songs, the lyrics of which at first appear to be innocuous but when listened to more carefully they reveal more complex and often disturbing attitudes. It is a humorous, poetic reflection on the state of our culture in the midst of the great turbulence of our times. The project is curated by Tom Eccles, Executive Director of the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College. Tickets are sold out, but names can be added to the Waitlist on Eventbrite.
