BETTY at The Smithsonian Museum
BETTY created the soundscape for Filthy Lucre. First commissioned by MASS MoCA. Moved in June to the Smithsonian’s Sackler Gallery. On view through January 2017.“Filthy Lucre,” an immersive interior by painter Darren Waterston, reimagines James McNeill Whistler’s famed Peacock Room. In “Filthy Lucre,” a near life-size recreation of Whistler’s aesthetic masterpiece, Waterston transforms almost every detail with images of decay, excess and natural phenomena. A soundscape by the band BETTY haunts the space.In addition to creating the Soundscape for Filthy Lucre, BETTY also performed it live in the space at both MASS MoCA and Smithsonian.
