About

Join us for the PEM Prize Festival on Sunday, May 22, which will be a daytime celebration free and open to the public featuring street musicians from the Greater Boston area curated by PEM and the artist. In his groundbreaking exhibition Partitura, Carlos Garaicoa imagined a new kind of orchestra — made up of 40 individual recordings of street musicians from Madrid and Bilbao, Spain. These artists varied widely in cultural background, skill level and musical tradition. The individual musicians brought the sounds of their city into the museum and with them a unique sense of place. In the spirit of Partitura, PEM will host an indoor/outdoor street music festival with artists bringing their unique sound to PEM throughout the day. The event will feature special food and beverage offerings, music, and art experiences to enjoy for all ages. Stay tuned for more details!
