News From Somewhere by Tomek Miernowski

On view: May 4-28 during gallery hours: Thursday & Friday 5-9pm and Saturday & Sunday 2-9pm.

Opening Reception May 4 6-9pm

News from Somewhere is a multimedia art installation that aims to provoke reflection upon social structures and power dynamics.

Using a touchscreen the audience selects from a numbered list of societies and is immersed in the sonic results of a social study conducted by five world-class improvisers involved in movements for social justice each of whom has chosen the sound arts as their primary form of artistic expression. The result is non-musical and anti-aesthetical; a sonic bridge that links the idea of society with physical creative collaboration mutual aid and evolution.

Today’s rapid environmental degradation and social upheavals demand new systems. The first step toward a new world is imagining it.

Participating Artists: Jon Cowherd Tomek Miernowski Dan Rieser Tony Scherr Yusuke Yamamoto
