Please join us Thursday, July 14 for the opening reception of Gabriel de la Mora: Sound Inscriptions on Fabric and Open Sessions 7.
The event is FREE and open to the public.
In the Main Gallery, The Drawing Center will present Gabriel de la Mora: Sound Inscriptions on Fabric, an installation of fifty-five pairs of found speaker screens. Each screen is imprinted with an inscription created by the dust and air that circulated through the speaker during its life, recording the cadence of countless voices, advertisements, news broadcasts, soap operas, football games, and music, as well as noise, interference, and silence.
In The Lab, Open Sessions 7: Hibernating Plan will consider drawing in relationship to the sense of suspended time inherent in planning. Featuring artists Sheree Hovsepian, Rafael Kelman, Arnold Kemp, Thessia Machado, Sun Moqing, Sara Chang Yan, and Tuguldur Yondonjamts, the exhibition will explore the notion of the “sketch” in relation to the instinct to hibernate, intuit, and mull over. Including works that feature light, sound, drawing, sculpture, and moving image, Hibernating Plan suggests that drawing exists alongside other forms of knowledge that cannot be exclusively acquired by observation, reason, or experience.
