In Motion: Borders and Migrations - May 16 - September 27
20 S West Temple
Salt Lake City, UT 84101
USA
801.328.4201

May 16 – September 27, 2014 in the Street Gallery
Opening Reception and Live Performance: May 16 from 7 to 9 PM 

 Salt Lake City, UT - The Utah Museum of Contemporary Art is proud to announce In Motion: Borders and Migrations, a group exhibition thataddresses the U.S.-Mexico border and its unique geographic, political, social, and aesthetic contexts. 

The works in the show complicate definitions of this demarcation as a fixed and knowable boundary line between nations. In Motion: Borders and Migrationsoffers audiences an alternative to popular media perspectives on the border and to the cultural give-and-take that occurs there.

 Though often framed as a site of tension, the international line between the United States and Mexico is a dynamic location that has generated a distinct artistic culture often overlooked in media coverage. The specific economic, political, and visual circumstances of the border have produced aesthetically compelling, socially engaged artistic practices on both sides of the line. Featuring photography, painting, video, sculpture, sound and performance pieces, In Motion: Borders and Migrations presents diverse perspectives on what it means to experience and move across the border, both physically and symbolically.  

In Motion: Borders and Migrations features local and international artists including: Diego Aguirre,  Rocio Boliver, Margarita Cabrera, Caleb Duarte, Electronic Disturbance Theater 2.0/b.a.n.g. lab, Marcos Ramirez ERRE, Ingrid Hernandez, Jesse Lerner, V. Kim Martinez, Yoshua Okón, Jorge Rojas, Rosario Sotelo, Glenn Weyant, and Alejandro Zacarias. 

In addition to the exhibition, the opening night reception will feature a live performance piece by Caleb Duarte, created for In Motion: Borders and Migrations. The piece will be filmed and displayed through video for the remaining run of the exhibition.

In Motion: Borders and Migrations was formed in collaboration with University of Utah professor, Elena Shtromberg and students in the course “Visual Culture along the U.S./Mexico Border.”

About The Sonorous Desert City Project: Suite I-III: www.sonorousdesertcity.com

The Sonorous Desert City Project: Suite I-III seeks to reacquaint Tucson (and newly acquaint the rest of the world) with our shared aural landscape through a series of listening performances and a limited edition recording.

In this age of rapid information distribution, virtual everything and earbuds, The Sonorous Desert City Project promotes taking time to simply unplug and listen to the world around us, to reconnect and explore our roles in this radiant soundscape, hearing the sacred in the mundane and the profound in the prosaic, all of which is not only healthy for our minds and spirits but also fosters a sense of place and connection.

The Sonorous Desert City Project is made possible through a generous grant by the Tucson Pima Arts Council.

The Sherman-Weyant Anarchist Implosion

1 March 2013

6-8pm

FREE  for all

The Sherman-Weyant Anarchist Implosion have created a site-specific ambient audio work that is inspired and provoked by Peter Young’s paintings while also explicitly devised to acoustically activate the MOCA Great Hall’s unique properties.  Echoing and celebrating Young’s career of painterly process-based abstraction, The Sherman-Weyant Anarchist Implosion will present a multi-threaded performative soundscape that is both algorithmic and improvisational.

About the artists:

David Sherman is a filmmaker and media/sound artist, whose appropriation and collage based, works are concerned with activating/documenting alternative histories and states of consciousness. Sherman’s works have been exhibited extensively at film festivals, museums and alternative venues throughout the world including:  The Whitney Biennial, The New York Film Festival, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, and Musée National d’Art Modern, Paris. www.davidshermanfilms.com

Glenn Weyant is a founding member and innovator of the early 21st Century Border Wall Deconstructionist Movement. Using a cello bow and implements of mass percussion to “play” the Sonoran Desert’s border walls, militarized infrastructure and assorted ephemera, both natural and human, Weyant’s internationally recognized work has been featured in films, books, photographs and audio recordings. In 2012 Weyant’s performance of John Cage’s 4″33 upon the Nogales Wall was included in the New York Public Library/John Cage Trust retrospective: John Cage unbound A Living Archive. To learn more about Weyant’s work visit: sonicanta.com

The Albuquerque Cultural Conference is a project of West End Press. It was hatched in 2007 by West End Publisher John Crawford, and named to recall the Kansas City Cultural Conferences of the late 1970s.

To date, there have been four Albuquerque Cultural Conferences (2007, 2008, 2010, and 2011). We’ve evolved in form and content, and meet in two- or three-day sessions in September at the Harwood Art Center. We concentrate on maintaining high energy on low budgets, with a combination of panels, workshops and evening performances. We featured mixed presentations of readings, performance art, and music. We offer an extensive book exhibit with opportunities for publishers, authors, and the voracious readership that makes up our ranks.

Excited to be composing a new sound installation based on Patty's images...

(Official Event Details)

Artist, Patricia Katchur grew up in Pittsburgh where she spied glimpses of urban decay
 brought about by a dying steel industry.

She was taken aback by these scenes as they
sat juxtaposed against the beautiful, natural world of flora, fauna
and the ever-changing weather.

These youthful memories have defined her artistic vision
and guided her careers in art, commerce and collaborations.

Joining Ms. Katchur during the reception will be special guest Glenn Weyant/ SonicAnta
who created a score inspired by her work.

BICAS
Cycle-Centric Instrument Workshops - 1-4 pm
44 West 6th St
Tucson, AZ
Price: $20

Since childhood I've been making music /sculpting sound / composing works with repurposed objects such as bike parts and bungee chords and lately I've thought it would be interesting to pass on the knowledge I'd gained in those areas.

So a few years back I proposed a series of bike-centric instrument workshops at BICAS in Tucson. Later this month the idea will become a reality.

The series will run every Saturday from April 30th through May 28th and conclude with a public performance. Everyone who attends will get to keep their instruments, mallets, wind instruments and other goodies. All for the low price of $20.

To register contact BICAS directly because classes are limited and filling up.

Hope to see you there.

The Hut
BICAS/Bike-A-Stra Workshop Benefit - 5 pm until midnight
ON 4th Ave
Tucson, AZ 85701
Price: $5

About the workshops: The BICAS Instrument Workshops will begin on Sunday’s from April 30th to May 28th with a concert that will be open to the public. The $20 fee covers all four workshops, materials, instruction, and a complimentary recording of the final performance.

The workshops look at the history of repurposed object instrumentation, design, fabrication, and performance application in a group setting. In addition to building cycle-centric instruments they can play and keep, students at the workshop will also receive materials and do-it-yourself (DIY) instructions for building simple amplifiers, microphones and pickups.

Educators include Casey Wollschlaeger – BICAS art and outreach coordinator, educator, and bicycle advocate. Glenn Weyant – Sound sculptor, educator, composer and builder of original instruments including The Electric Ferris Box and Kestrel 920.

“Bikes and bike culture is about much more than just transportation. They are about creating community, developing self-reliance, healthy lifestyle choices, environmental stewardship, and having fun,” said BICAS Art Coordinator Casey Wollschlaeger. “BICAS has been building a reputation for creating cycle influenced art for some time. Now for the first time in Tucson, BICAS, is offering workshops which will allow the community to explore the musical properties of bicycles and other re-purposed objects and materials.”

“As children I think we all innately knew about the sound properties of our bikes. We attached playing cards to spokes or tapped out rhythms on the frame and handlebars,” said Glenn Weyant, a founding member of Bike-A-Stra and inventor of The Electric Ferris Box. “These workshops will reconnect participant with that sense of imagination and exploration while building functional instruments they can play in an orchestral setting mixing both composition and improvisation.”

Calibrated to amplify and exploit the nano and overt vibrations created through percussive blows, bowing, electromagnetic fields and assorted manipulation, the heart of Kestrel 920 is a segment of found lumber that has been hollowed to create a resonation chamber for the mounting of a contact microphone. The lumber has been strategically mounted with found objects mostly including: a tuned dust pan, a deconstructed satellite dish mount, assorted screws, a bicycle hub, nails, bungee cords, wires and springs. During a question and answer period Weyant will discuss his ideas about new instrument design, construction and performance techniques, development of communication with personalized sonic languages, non-linear group interaction and full-body listening. 11:00 a.m.- 11:45 a.m. Talk: Amplification and the Human Ear, Daniel R. Boone, Ph.D. Daniel R. Boone, Ph.D, Professor Emeritus of the University of Arizona, will talk about hearing amplification and continuous noise exposure appear to be taking a toll on our ability to listen. A growing portion of our listening audience have hearing impairment, and many of them with normal hearing have forgotten how to listen. We take a look at the normal ear and the physiology of how we hear, appreciating the effects on normal hearing from aging and disease. We consider the differences in listening to coded and uncoded hearing in listening to both music and speech. We consider the impact of self-hearing on our ability to perform instrumentally, in our singing, and in our ability to speak. 12:00 p.m.- 12:40 p.m. Performance: Steven Romaniello will perform on the Theremin. Originally, the theremin was intended to replace entire orchestras with its "music from the ether." While that never quite happened, it has been used in many recordings over the years. During the 60's and 70's, bands such as Lothar and the Hand People, the Bonzo Doo Dah Dog Band, and Led Zeppelin brought the theremin into the public eye for a short time. Then, the theremin slipped back into obscurity until the recent revival of the 1990s. Today, lots of bands use theremins, though few in a musical context. 12:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m EXTRA Special Events @ The Westward Look Resort State of the Art surround sound recordings by Dr. Mark Waldrep of AIX Records, demonstrated on complete, highest quality, state of the art surround sound equipment for your home.

With a methodology rooted in his experiences transforming the U.S./Mexico border into an electro-acoustic instrument, Tucson-based sound sculptor Glenn Weyant will use images, sounds and words to explore what happens when culturally symbolic or metaphorical objects are chosen as instruments and how this approach can engage the passive listener with an organic line of questioning, leading to a deeper awareness of issues beyond the sounds themselves.
