Live Photos: Banks Worships at The Altar of The Guggenheim (NSFW)

Banks brought her downtempo, seductive anthems to the Guggenheim Museum last week in celebration of the institution’s International Gala, an event that celebrated abstract painter Agnes Martin as well as trailblazers Tauba Auerbach, Tacita Dean, Sarah Morris, Laurie Simmons and Taryn Simon. The LA musician played material from sophomore album The Altar for the first time, showcasing the new synth-laced, R&B tracks in the company of two backup dancers. Paste photographer DeShaun Craddock captured the 30-minute show, performed appropriately on a stage resembling an altar. Note: slight nudity in the following images.
