Anthem comprises an eighty-four-foot curtain sculpture with a projection of Glenn-Copeland improvising and singing passages of his music, including original a cappella melodies and ‘Deep River.’

Aiming to harness the Guggenheim’s acoustics to create a “sonic sculptural space,” the piece also compliments Glenn-Copeland’s vocals with ambient, other vocal timbres, and “heterogeneous sonic and visual textures.”

Anthem was developed in collaboration with Asma Maroof and Kelsey Lu, who was one of the cover stars featured as part of Fact Magazine’s print re-launch.

Anthem will run at the Guggenheim until the 6th September.
