Os Gemeos Video

This is a great little video clip — a mini-documentary — on Os Gemeos, the twin brothers from Sao Paulo who are the international superstars of Brazilian street art. The video has a short interview with the Os Gemeos bros while they were in New York for a big gallery show. There is also an appearance in the clip from Jeffrey Deitch, the influential art-world impressario and owner of the New York gallery showing the work, Deitch Projects.

Musician playing a keyboard integrated into the architecture of an unused part of the Battery Maritime Building (an old ferry terminal) in downtown Manhattan. Various structural elements of the building emit sounds corresponding to the keys. The keyboardist performed as part of an ensemble. “Playing the Building” is the name of the keyboard-building art installation (and thus the unique venue), which was created by former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne .
