Orbit Pavilion

The Orbit Pavilion is an outdoor installation that is the brainchild of Dan Goods and David Delgado, visual strategists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, who conceived an innovative “soundscape” representing the movement of the International Space Station and 19 Earth satellites. Satellites that study the Earth are passing through space continuously, collecting data on everything from hurricanes to the effects of drought. What if you could make contact with these orbiting spacecraft, and bring them “down to Earth?” Visitors can do exactly that when NASA’s Orbit Pavilion sound experience touches down at The Huntington this fall.

Silencio Blanco: Chiflón, el Silencio del Carbón

Mass dismissals following a mine shaft collapse force a young miner to head for the Chiflón del Diablo mine—the most deadly pit of all. As he toils in danger deep underground, his family faces a day-to-day struggle of uncertainty and anxiety. This exquisitely eloquent retelling of a story by the distinguished Chilean author Baldomero Lillo is played out in silence using simple marionettes fashioned from newsprint and chopsticks. Silencio Blanco creates their own language through gesture, making the audience’s imaginations active participants in the interpretation of the story. The emotional and dramatic impact of this adaptation takes puppetry to new levels as Silencio Blanco confronts the black silence of Chile’s mining history. More

Van Gogh’s ‘Bedroom’ on Loan From the Art Institute of Chicago

The Norton Simon Museum is delighted to present an installation of Vincent van Gogh’s tender and intimate 'Bedroom' from 1889, a highlight of the Art Institute of Chicago’s superb 19th-century collection. A meditation on friendship, hope and crushing disappointment, Van Gogh’s 'Bedroom' serves not only as a kind of self-portrait, but also as a symbol of the artist’s wandering existence and search for an elusive sense of repose.
