Seeing Is Hearing? Considering Soundings: A Contemporary Score
Thursday, October 31, 2013, 11:30 a.m.
Special Exhibitions Gallery, second floor
We take for granted that "art" primarily involves what we can experience with our eyes. This session encourages us to think about how we use our sense of hearing in relation to the works on view in Soundings: A Contemporary Score. We will play a game of only looking at certain artworks (with ears covered), only hearing others (with eyes closed), and then considering those isolated experiences when we see and hear a work at the same time.
In conjunction with the exhibition Soundings: A Contemporary Score
Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.
Sign language–interpreted Gallery Sessions are held every fourth Sunday of the month at 1:30 p.m. FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
