Special Sound Performance by Steve Roden
“Steve Roden: In Between”, is the first exhibition to bring together Steve Roden's art in all its divergent forms and reveals his work as a homogenous, conceptually coherent practice, through the inclusion of a core sampling of his art. Featured in the exhibition is selection of early works that are precursors to the artists numerous later directions, as well as a new group of works conceived and executed specially for the exhibition. The overall presentation is rooted in a five-year series of paintings, sculptures, sound works, musical compositions, text works, and video installations from 2004 through 2009 that, while formally divergent, are generated by Roden's systemic operations on the same musical score. The exhibition reveals the unity and continuity of intent within the exceptional diversity of Roden's artistic pursuits.
On October 28 at 7:30 p.m. Steve Roden will create a live improvised sound performance, using found objects and instruments, field recordings, old records, and other sound generating materials. The concert is free and open to the public.
