MUSIC AS IMAGE AND METAPHOR


Selections from the Kentler International drawing space Flatfiles

Exhibition at The Bo Bartlett Center, Columbus State University, Georgia

January 22 – March 20, 2021

Co-Curators: David Houston and Florence Neal

Musical track by Michael Kowalski and Allen Otte

Panel Discussion Online: Tuesday, March 9, 2021

Music as Image and Metaphor brings together forty-one works by twenty-eight artists from the Kentler Flatfiles (Brooklyn, NY) focused on the theme of music. The theme of music-as-image includes works that were directly inspired by or are illustrative of sound art, while the image-as-metaphor theme encompasses a diverse group of works that, directly or indirectly, reflect the structure and artistic goals of musical composition and improvisation. As an incentive to the viewer to pursue these rich connections more deeply, the exhibition also includes a suite of one-minute musical responses to each graphic work, specially created for the installation at the Bartlett Center. Some of the connections are direct and clear, others poetic or even fanciful. Whatever the connection, this exhibition celebrates the ongoing dance between the visual and the aural that is hundreds, if not thousands, of years old.

RACISM: THE OTHER AMERICAN PANDEMIC

Yulia Tikhonova, curator


Racism: The Other American Pandemic is an online exhibition of artistic voices inspired by blatant systemic racism, police brutality, political outrage and resurgent white nationalism. The exhibit, on display from July 15-September 8, 2020, seeks to capture this moment in real time, through an intensive curation of the unprecedented online archiving of artistic responses to the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25.

With more than 20 visual and multi-media artists, poets and performers from the United States and abroad, ìRacism: The Other American Pandemic reflects the abundance of stirring visual and literary responses that have dominated the national conversation since May.

SOLO SHOW: VOICE


September 28–November 3, 2019

Opening Reception: September 28, 6–8 PM Artist Talk: October 20, 4–5:30 PM


Viviane Rombaldi Seppey’s recent visual and sound art pieces contemplate human exchange and the role of verbal language in communication and comprehension. Having lived most of her life in places where the spoken language was not her mother tongue, she began to question how arbitrary words can be, especially when an accent can generate misunderstanding. The Roman alphabet became the starting point of the themes in her work, as it is the common element among the languages she has encountered. Her exhibition includes artist books, drawings, collages, and an interactive sound piece. In the central piece, Pulsating, alphabet lines are reinterpreted into a musical score (by musician Benjamin Velez) and transcribed on paper to be played with musical boxes. Visitors are then invited to choose a letter to play on the music box. The “singing” letters become a language in itself, encouraging viewers to expand their ideas about modes of communication.

COLLAGE BY WOMEN: 50 Essential Contemporary Artists
by Rebeka Elizegi, Blanca Ortiga

I’m one of the 50 international women artists mentioned in this book

Collage by Women presents 50 international women artists working in the field of collage today through a rigorous selection of their works. Curated by the Spanish collage artist Rebeka Elizegi, the book gives space to voices from all backgrounds, origins, and artistic expressions, and shows the wide variety of perspectives that are shaping the panorama of collage today, bringing to light a parallel effervescence of female artistic initiatives around the world. From emerging names to more well-known and established ones, the artists featured here are pushing back the boundaries of art. Collage by Women wants to call attention to the experiences and creative processes of artists that should be on our radar through an impressive selection of manual and digital techniques, topics and aesthetic choices, accompanied by texts that provide in-depth approaches to the inspiration, influences and work trajectory of each artist.

Born from the belief that women's voices are of the utmost relevance in all cultural and social fields, the book will surely contribute to a healthier, more comprehensive, more inclusive understanding of our reality.

NAVIGATING NEW YORK

Group show at the : New York Transit Museum

Opening October 11th, 2018


New York's transportation history happened in phases, from early ships, trains and passenger ferries to more modern subways, trains, buses and cars. Transportation maps highlight the story of New York's growth through the increasingly connected transportation system. Indeed, mass transit helped make the greater New York region what it is today. Navigating New York draws on the New York Transit Museum's collection, artistic renderings, historic maps, guidebooks and digital technology that refresh our view of the city and show how transportation has catalyzed its development.
