Art Into Music
Art Into Music is devoted to artists whose work is inspired by music, a fitting theme given Brooklyn’s international prominence as a magnet for both visual artists and musicians. The exhibition will feature 10 artists working in such varied media as installation, collage, public interventions, painting, text-based work, sculpture, and video. It will examine the myriad ways in which music inspires contemporary artists, as well as exploring the complex relationship between popular, mass media culture and so called "fine" art. Some artists work with the material platforms of music, whether archaic or current, including 33 RPM records, and boomboxes. Others portray the culture of music or explore music as a formative element in our personal and cultural identities. The exhibition will feature a listening station in the gallery designed by John Felix Arnold III where visitors will be able to access playlists that exhibition artists listen to while making their work, or which act as inspiration for them.
