DESCRIPTION

VOLUME is pleased to announce that Scores will open May 7 at Lawrimore Project in Seattle.

The relationship between musical scores and conceptual art is well documented: from early Stockhausen scores and John Cage’s seminal work, to the conceptual art strategies of Sol LeWitt and Yoko Ono, artists have found the idea of the score as a useful tool to further artistic practices. Historically, visual artists have used the notion of the score to transmit a set of instructions for completing an artwork (LeWitt) or in other cases the score itself is the final piece (Ono).

For this exhibition, we have asked 14 artists to participate in this tradition by creating a new visual work that will also serve as a musical score for another artist or musician to interpret and perform.

The artists in Scores include Nayland Blake, Julie Davidow, Lecia Dole-Recio, Fallen Fruit, Steven Hull, Tomo Isoyama, Monique Jenkinson, Nina Katchadourian, Keep Adding, Simon Leung, Lucky Dragons, Eamon Ore-Giron, Steve Roden, David Schafer, and Laetitia Sonami.

The Scores exhibition is part 1 of a 2-part project. More information on the entire project will be forthcoming.
