The Chinati Foundation is pleased to announce a free performance by musician Arto Lindsay as part of this year’s annual Chinati Weekend celebration. The event takes place at 9:30pm Saturday, October 8, 2016 at the Saint George Hall, 113 East El Paso Street.  The event is free and open to the public.

Arto Lindsay (b. 1953) has stood at the intersection of music and art for more than four decades. As a member of DNA, he contributed to the foundation of No Wave. As bandleader for the Ambitious Lovers he developed an intensely subversive pop music, a hybrid of American and Brazilian styles. He has a distinctive soft voice and an often noisy, self-taught guitar style, contrasted frequently with gentler, sensuous Brazilian music themes.  Throughout his career, Lindsay has collaborated with both visual and musical artists, including Vito Acconci, Laurie Anderson, Animal Collective, Matthew Barney, Caetano Veloso and  Rirkrit Tiravanija.
