The Tiger's Mind (Cornelius Cardew)

Kunstlerhaus Stuttgart
Sun, 11/28/2010 - 7:30pm

Beatrice Gibson's films explore voice and its notation, employing the graphic score and the conversation as paradigms for their production. Framed by a new publication by Gibson and editor and typographer Will Holder , the exhibition presents three existing films and a new work, commissioned and co-produced by Künstlerhaus Stuttgart . Conceived as the first chapter to the publication The Tiger's Mind, six practitioners (John Tilbury, Alex Waterman , Celine Condorelli , Jesse Ash, Christoph Keller , and Axel Wieder) have been invited to hold a conversation during the time of the exhibition, scored by Cornelius Cardew's 1967 composition of the same name.

The Tiger's Mind by Beatrice Gibson is part of the project 'Scores', organized by Künstlerhaus Stuttgart in collaboration with the CAC Brétigny .

Vogue'ology. Organized Listening: Sound Art, Collectivity and Politics

Theresa Lang Community and Student Center, Arnhold Hall, 55 West 13th Street, 2nd floor
Thu, 11/18/2010 - 6:30pm


The sound-art collective Ultra-red presents “Organized Listening: Sound Art, Collectivity, and Politics” as part of their exhibition Vogue'ology (the Aronson Gallery, Parsons, November 17–30), which examines the possibilities for establishing an archive of the House and Ballroom community. Based on the concept of collective listening, the exhibition features fragments and phrases from House and Ballroom oral histories and vogue descriptions.

For the exhibition Vogue'olgy, members of Ultra-red consider the intersection of sound and politics in a public event with artists, union organizers, historians, and representatives of Ballroom ministries. The audience is invited to engage with sound as an object of reflection and with listening as a means of political organizing.

Facilitators include: Dont Rhine, member of Ultra-red and Robert Sember, 2009–2010 Vera List Center Fellow and member of Ultra-red.

Participants include:
