Contemporary Color

Opened Wednesday, March 1

Inspired by the American art of color guard–synchronized groups who perform choreographed routines with flags, rifles and sabers–music legend David Byrne brought together artists like St. Vincent, Nelly Furtado, Ad-Rock and Ira Glass to collaborate on original pieces with color guard teams from across the continent. Culminating in a once-in-a-lifetime event at Barclays Center in Brooklyn in the summer of 2015, Byrne’s vision was captured in this gorgeous documentary.
