A celestial music series presented by Grace Wales Bonner.

To celebrate the opening of A Time for New Dreams at the Serpentine Galleries, Grace Wales Bonner is curating an evening of performances called Devotional Sound, at St. John’s Church on Saturday, January 19.

Hosted by The Store X, Young Turks and Serpentine Gallery, Devotional Sound is the first in a series of events exploring mysticism, spirituality and ritual – alongside the month-long run of Wales Bonner’s exhibition A Time for New Dreams.

Devotional Sound

The inaugural evening will feature music by seminal ambient artist Laraaji and Klein, set in the ethereal St. John’s venue.

Devotional Sound will take place at Saturday, January 19 at St. John’s Hyde Park at 8pm.
