Moët & Chandon ‘Your Voices’ Art Installation in Lincoln Center
December 6, 2022 - December 18, 2022
In the spirit of the holiday season, with its distinctive high energy and sparkles of light, Moët & Chandon is hosting a series of global celebrations in more than 20 cities around the world, bringing people together with joy. Of all cities, New York City in particular has a long-standing relationship with the Maison. As a hallmark of the occasion, Moët & Chandon has commissioned a public sculpture, “Your Voices” by British contemporary artist Es Devlin, installed on Lincoln Center’s Josie Robertson Plaza.
A large-scale artwork, the illuminated revolving sculpture celebrates the strength and resilience of New York while honoring its linguistic and cultural diversity. The sculpture is formed of 700 glowing cords, expressing 700 of the languages currently spoken in New York City, tensioned between a series of structural arcs, enveloping visitors within a revolving illuminated network as it rotates north, south, east and west through a multilingual choral soundscape which interweaves languages drawn from all over the city, from Algerian Arabic, Alsation, Azeri and Ashanti to Zapotec, Zarma and Zulu.
On select evenings at 6:00 pm, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts curates a series of New York-based choral groups to perform live from within the sculpture. Each choir represents the vast range of unique voices and languages of this special city. *Performances run around 25 min.
