On view by appointment only, please contact the artist at sydney.aubert@gmail.com Reception: Thursday, April 27 | 6pm-9pm Bolsky Gallery, Otis College of Art and Design

  • Audrey Wollen is a feminist theorist and visual artist based in Los Angeles. Wollen uses social media, such as Twitter and Instagram, as platforms for her work on Sad Girl Theory, a theory which posits that internalized female sadness can be used as a radical and political action, separate from masculinized forms of protests such as anger and violence. She introduces this form of protest as an alternative to masculinized anger and violence.

Impossible Measures
Anna Craycroft in conversation with artist and curator Micah Silver. In conjunction with the current exhibition Anna Craycroft: Tuning the Room


Art can be thought of productively as about learning ... and in this frame the material of art is not sound, not paint, not objects, but the schematic play we perform (with body, attention, our entirety) in order to absorb the work.

                                                - quote from Silver’s book Figures in Air

This event will address the fearlessness of open-ended listening.  In a time of "alternative facts" where measures of reality have gone askew, our own subjectivity is urgently needed to build a world rooted in trust and possibility. Micah Silver and Anna Craycroft will make social and acoustic experiments that explore the ineffable qualities of sound and audio. Visitors will be invited to join in these activities and discussions. Together we will reflect on how we move through the air, tuning our attention and imaginations to acoustic energies of the space and one another. We will think about how little we, amateurs and professionals alike, can adequately describe and quantify these observations. Liberated by the inexactness of measure and the evidential truth of witness, we will play with the different meanings we can extract from them.


Snacks and beverages will be provided by Eden Batki that draw awareness to taste and digestion, mirroring the exhibition's attention to the sensory perception of acoustics and optics.

 

Micah Silver is an artist and curator who studied music at Wesleyan and in MIT’s Art, Culture and Technology program. His work has been produced by Mass MoCA, Issue Project Room, Palais de Tokyo, and OK Zentrum, among other venues internationally. Micah Silver website: http://nophones.org/

Anna Craycroft lives and works in New York City. Mining fields like education, cinema, psychology, literature and art history in her practice, she examines cultural models for fostering individuality. Through drawings, paintings, videos, sculptures, furniture, installations, books, workshops, or curatorial projects she works thematically on a single thesis over a series of exhibitions. Her current exhibition Tuning the Room follows other investigations by Craycroft into the correspondences between art and education.
