    Anna Craycroft: Tuning the Room

    January 28 - April 16, 2017

    Ben Maltz Gallery

  • Opening Reception

    Jan 28| Special Event
    More

    In acoustical engineering, “tuning the room” is a technique for measuring the specific sound properties of an enclosed space and then adapting the environment to improve its acoustic reflections. New York-based artist Anna Craycroft applies this technique both literally and metaphorically to the Ben Maltz Gallery for her exhibition Tuning the Room. Craycroft’s exhibition asks that we consider how the specific characteristics of an environment shape our experience within it, and how we become attuned in return.

Calendar

You are invited to a Movies that Matter Special Screening of the dramatic new thriller, The Fifth Estate on Tuesday, January 28 at 7 PM in the Otis Forum.  Based on real events, The Fifth Estate reveals the quest of  Wikileaks' founder Julian Assange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to expose the deceptions and corruptions of power, turning his Internet upstart into an organization where whistleblowers could anonymously leak classified information - and did!

 

Our special guest speaker will be The Fifth Estate screenwriter Josh Singer (Law & Order, The West Wing) for a Q & A after the film which will be moderated by Movies that Matter producers Judy Arthur and Perri Chasin.

 

"First-Rate Thriller"  Tom Carson, GQ
“As nervy and as excitable as the trade that it depicts”  Anthony Lane, New Yorker
" Intelligent, dynamic!”  Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
“Cumberbatch is as close as you’ll get to Assange without being arrested”  David Bradley, Rip it Up

 

The Movies that Matter Special Screening Series is produced by LAS Faculty Perri Chasin and Mentor Faculty Judy Arthur in association with Otis Student Activities.

 

See you at the movies!
