The Grunwald Gallery of Art is pleased to announce Waveforms an exhibit of sound art featuring the work of six artists and two artist teams. This exhibition will open to the public with a reception Friday, October 21, 6:00 - 8:00pm and be on view through Friday, November 18, 2011. A Symposium/discussion will be held Friday, October 21 from 2:00 - 4:00 pm followed by a performance by Chicago sound artist Lou Mallozzi from 4:00 - 6:00pm.
Waveforms is an exhibition of interdisciplinary art works showcasing sound as the principle component. This exhibition explores, through an examination of creative and artistic practices, the interface of sound and new media technologies. The works in the exhibit include a number of trans-disciplinary interactions and collaborations that include sound in the context of visual and spatial artistic practices, including sound sculpture, installations, and performance works.
Featured artists include Carrie Bodle, Jacob C. Hammes, Norbert Herber/Rowland Ricketts, Tesia Kosmalski, Lou Mallozzi, Shannon McMullen/Fabian Winkler, Stephanie Rowden, and Jesse Seay. The list includes both emerging and established artists, primarily from the Midwest. Norbert Herber, artist and faculty member at Indiana University, will moderate the Symposium/discussion.
Because this exhibit is about the exchange of thought among a variety of disciplines, it will highlight the role that artistic practice and creative thinking have in our appropriation and understanding of technology, including practice and dialogue related to changes within both the natural and man-made environment. By comparing material practices in a variety of creative fields, new insights are gained into the way that artists and collaborators recognize the "new" and how the "new" becomes a building block for future discoveries.
