Ragnar Kjartansson: S.S. Hangover Museum & Exhibits

Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson's dreamy and fantastical kinetic sound sculpture, S.S. Hangover, consists of a hand-painted 1930s boat sailing on the lagoon, carrying a party of six brass musicians performing ethereal music by Kjartan Sveinsson for several hours.

First exhibited at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013 and in New York's Central Park in 2015, S.S. Hangover at Laguna Gloria will feature musicians from Austin's contemporary chamber orchestra collective, Density512.
