LIVE AV

Kim Gordon MIRA 2024

Kim Gordon will be at MIRA 2024 presenting her brand new album The Collective, the most electronic one yet, with a LIVE AV show being her unique show in Spain this year. 

Since co-founding the seminal Sonic Youth in the early 80’s, Gordon has remained at the nexus of music, art and (more recently) books and film. She has debuted in the #1 spot on the NYTimes Bestseller List with her 2015 memoir Girl In A Band, acted under the direction of Gus Van Sant, released music and performed as one half of Body/Head alongside Bill Nace, and opened multiple solo-exhibitions at internationally renowned museums.

Released in 2019, Kim Gordon’s debut album No Home Record received wide-ranging critical acclaim, including from The New York Times (“The art star queen of New York cool”), The Guardian ***** (“brilliantly weds noise textures to pop dynamics”), Sunday Times ‘Album Of The Week’ (“brutally good), Vogue (“immediate, loose, and liberated….as ferocious as she’s ever been”), Vanity Fair (“finds new ways to sound experimental”) and Pitchfork ‘Best New Music’(“thrilling solo debut lives at the vanguard of sound and performance”). 

Gordon’s output since No Home Record has encompassed art book/visual journal No Icon on Rizzoli, a single with former Dinosaur Jr. front person J Mascis, an exhibition of her paintings at New York’s 303 art gallery, a commission for The Museum im Bellpark in Kriens in collaboration with artist Josephine Pryde, and a dance and music stage performance with choreographer Dimitri Shambles. Elsewhere, Gordon hosted a public sale of her iconic wardrobe, with all proceeds going to the Downtown Women’s Center in Los Angeles.

Later on, “Bye Bye” was released as a single this past January 2024. The track is from Gordon’s complex, addictive and amazing album The Collective, which was released in March 2024 with Matador Records. With this new record she has proven, again, that she was a key player in Sonic Youth’s legendary innovative sound. The song is accompanied by an official video starring her daughter Coco Gordon Moore.
