Assembly: Inside Voices
12 – 1 pm, Contemporary Art Gallery
Part of Locally Made’s One Room.
In Assembly, gather for casual meetings of the minds and unexpected happenings curated by local artists and designers. Congregate for poetry readings, sonic performances, movement, projection, and more.
Jori Ketten curates Inside Voices from 7/30 - 8/4.
Set down what you carry. Lower your voice, raise your attention. Join these artists, selected for their practice as world-makers, as they take you on sensory excursions inside their environments. Gentle and sure, grounded and experimental, curious and complicated – each day will bring new experiences of gravity and wonder. — Jori Ketten
8/4: Geoff Mullen
I will be presenting a version of a new work that exists somewhere in between a musical performance and a sound installation. The work explores our heavily mediated experiences w/ the outside world, and chooses as its material a wide range of consumer-grade audio electronics that help us navigate this world. — Geoff Mullen
Free with museum admission.
