Listen with Your Ears and Eyes Wide Open, This Time promises to bring the viewer a little closer to that sound in their own head that won't stop going, even when it is quiet. Wait, is it ever really quiet? This art show is an attempt by curator Rich Jacobs to bring a lot of different influences together, and show people that are open to it that sound, noise and even music can all be neighbors. They don't have to get along, but they can exist next to one another, at least for a month on the walls at Park Life.
There will be plenty of things to see, hear, experience, and even learn from in this show: sculptural works, flat drawings, paintings, and photographs will sit on the walls next to sound pieces and homemade instruments built specifically for this exhibition. There is sure to be a gentle racket, so don't be afraid to bring a set of open ears, along with those eyes of yours.
Chances are, you may like something, or even recognize a few of the artists, musicians, and noise-heads involved in the show. They have all been doing their thing for quite some time now. Come see it all together and witness the sound installation of this Move series show in person. You will be glad you saw, and heard it.
