June 13 - June 26, 2012
Reception: Thursday, June 14, 6 - 8 PM
In conjunction with an evening of performances at the Rubin Museum on June 18th, _, curated by Janna Dyk, includes works by New York artists in response to the concept of silence in visual art, using the peculiar juxtaposition of two texts of the same title, _Silence, by premier Japanese novelist Shusako Endo, and the late American composer and theorist John Cage. Via such modes as erasure, negative space, covering, absence, pause, and the like, the works address the psychological, spiritual, and spatial implications of silence, as evidenced in these two divergent texts.
Artists include Jenna Bauer, David Brown, J Carpenter, Joshua Cave, Lia Chavez, Joshua Clayton, Dean Ebben, Jung Ah Kim, Karine Laval, Thomas Martin, Morgan O’Hara, Ned Shalanski, Kristen Studioso, Karen L. Schiff, Elizabeth Tubergen, and Shimpei Takeda.
[ON SILENCE] is a project through the 2012 Chelsea Music Festival (http://www.chelseamusicfestival.org/2012-Festival-Overview).
Gallery hours are Monday – Friday, 10am-4pm, or by appointment. Please contact Janna Dyk for further details: email@example.com.
