GAMELATRON @ AAM: Bodyphones
Through April 2020
Open daily from 10 a.m.–4 p.m.
Museum Front Yard

Bodyphones is an immersive installation by Aaron Taylor Kuffner (1975), an American-born conceptual artist, based in New York. The artwork’s mission is to expand the legacy and creative cultural power of the traditional Indonesian instrument called the gamelan. Kuffner exhibits his Gamelatrons to create sanctuaries both in public and private spaces.

Pictured is Aaron Taylor Kuffner, Visionary Artist for the 2019 Academy Art Museum Craft Show, with his Gamelatron project in the Museum’s frontyard. The interactive sculpture marries Indonesian ritual and sonic tradition with robotics and modernist sculpture and will be on display through April 2020.
