Audio-Visual: The Intersection of Art and Music
August 27 – September 29, 2012
University Gallery

An exhibition exploring the intersection of art and music, featuring visual scores, creative instruments, paintings, photographs, installations, and live performances.

Lecture by Theresa Saur: September 20, 2012 (time TBA)

Theresa Saur will be speaking about her ongoing research project and book, Notations 21. This project and anthology is based on John Cage’s seminal work, particularly his musical scores that were liberated from the traditional staff and are essentially graphic in nature. Since the 1960s, thousands of composers have developed unique or graphical styles of notation, and this book profiles the work of more than 160 such composers. This project represents "the most exhilarating and exciting concepts of communication systems and developments in new performance methods by fusing the arts in the most experimental and innovative styles never seen before."

Gallery Reception: September 20, 2012 (time TBA)

Please check our website for other performances to be announced.

Tammie Rubin is a contemporary ceramic artist whose primary interests are transforming the familiar and trivial into the mythic and fantastical. Her sculptures explore chimerical creatures, contraptions, and assemblages, and they often refer to conical forms that imply communication; such as megaphones, dunce caps, caution cones, gramophones, steeples, and satellite dishes.
