“May I give you a song?” This question is at the heart of artist Lee Mingwei‘s interactive performance work, Sonic Blossom (2015). In the Met’s Modern/Contemporary and Asia Galleries, singers will approach Museum visitors at random with the query. If your answer is “yes,” the vocalist will perform a Schubert lied. Mingwei compares the sporadic performances to “the folding and unfolding of a ‘Sonic Blossom.’”
