ARI BENJAMIN MEYERS
(1972, New York) lives and works in Berlin. Composer, musician and conductor, Meyers is interested in the modalities and representation of music within the context of contemporary art. His practice explores the structures and the processes that define the performative, aesthetic, social and ephemeral character of music composition.
In the last years, he presented his productions in collaboration with important museums and contemporary art institutions in Europe (Manchester International Festival, Liverpool Biennial, Witte de With museum in Rotterdam).
He collaborated with several contemporary artists such as Anri Sala, Tino Sehgal and Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster. Meyers was Music Director of the staged group show Il Tempo del Postino curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Philippe Parreno (Manchester International Festival, 2007 and Art Basel, 2009).
Ari Benjamin Meyers is represented by the Berlin-based gallery Esther Schipper.
