The Sounds of the Chazen: Aura of Abstraction

Museum education assistant Serendipity Swanstrom-Stage has put together several playlists on Spotify inspired by the Chazen’s permanent collection. First up is “Aura of Abstraction.”

Of the playlist, Swanstrom-Stage says, “This is a collection of colors that speak to the soul, forms innate to some subconscious recognition, paired alongside sounds that loop.” The following works served as her inspiration; click on each one to find out more.
