The environment’s impact is more acute than ever. Forces + Fates explores how the environment has influenced artists over centuries—and how will it continue to inspire in centuries to come. Explore Fingal’s Cave in the British Isles though Mendelssohn’s The Hebrides, the rainmaking rituals of the Amazonian Tupi-Guarani tribes during Clarice Assad’s Nhanderú and immerse yourself in Earth’s past, present and future through a momentous three-part commission. Then, brace yourself for the ultimate exploration of fate and destiny: a second half featuring Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5.
