Alexis Taylor, Money Mark, and Nick Relph at The Cloisters

Hot Chip founder Alexis Taylor presents an intimate electro-acoustic concert featuring special guests including visual artist Nick Relph, Beastie Boys keyboard player Money Mark on the Echolodeon, an invention inspired by the player-piano, Annie Hart, and Jonny Lam. Expect modern-day secular “spirituals,” playing with our expectations of artificiality and authenticity, responding to The Met Cloisters’ space and history.

The Cloisters

The Cloisters museum and gardens, the branch of The Metropolitan Museum of Art devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe, was assembled from architectural elements, both domestic and religious, that largely date from the twelfth through the fifteenth century.

The building and its cloistered gardens—located in Fort Tryon Park in northern Manhattan—are treasures in themselves, effectively part of the collection housed there. The Cloisters’ collection comprises approximately two thousand works of art.
