The Visitors, an immersive, nine-screen video installation, highlights Ragnar Kjartansson’s use of durational performance to capture collective emotion. Each frame of the installation features a different musician—a cellist, a pianist, a banjo player, an accordionist, a drummer, and two guitarists—who play together simultaneously, but in separate rooms, surrounded by the faded glamour of the Rokeby Farm House in Hudson Valley, New York. A designated historic landmark, the house was built in 1815 on the 400-acre estate owned by the descendants of the Astor family, who purchased the property in 1836.

Following the opening day, the exhibit will be on display until September 22.
