Curated by Christian Cummings & Doug Harvey

Summer 2011 Group Exhibition

Venue:

Shoshana Wayne Gallery
2525 Michigan Ave # B1
Santa Monica, CA 90404-4031

Date: July 23 – August 25, 2011
Opening Saturday, July 23 / 6-8 pm

Works by Yann Novak, Robert Crouch, Heather Cassills and i8u’s 29 Palms
released on DER will be part of the exhibit +  many more artists!

Chain Letter is a group exhibition based on admiration.  Initially
conceived by Christian Cummings and Doug Harvey in 2006, inclusion in the
exhibition is based on invitation by someone who admires one’s work.  Each
artist invited, then invites ten other artists whom they admire, and so
on.  This email invite will circulate for thirty days, at the end of which
each artist will install their own work on the floor at Shoshana Wayne
Gallery.

This exhibition is rooted in the ideals of inclusion, and highlights the
social nature of the art world.  It is the hope of the curators that the
response will be vast and that the artists represented will be an
exponential representation of all artists that are currently working and
admired by their peers.

Chain Letter mimics communication today; and the way in which information
is passed.  The outcome will be a testament to the power of connectivity
within society at present.

Other cities worldwide will be participating in the Chain Letter
exhibition including New York City, London, Paris, Johannesburg,
Philadelphia, Boston, Seoul.

Inspired by Eve Sedgwick’s essay Queer and Now, this exhibition engages Sedgwick’s observation that Christmas is the one time in the year where nearly every institution in the US lines up in unison to reinforce the same definition of family, religion, and tradition; definitions that define queer subjects as “other.”

Modeled loosely after a suicide prevention line, from one side to the other, I’ve dreamed that too. offers callers a moment of solace, or tools for active resistance against the monolithic tide of conservative signification that defines this holiday season, in all forms.

EVENT HORIZON Cédrick Eymenier | i8u

EVENT HORIZON is an experimental audio/visual work by i8u (audio) and
Cédrick Eymenier (visual) developed in the summer of 2009.The title of the piece was drawn from the physics term “event horizon” which is a bizarre boundary in space time which gives a black hole it’s name.  It is the proximity point in which no matter or radiation (ex.light) can escape and thereby affect an outside observer.  It is the black holes effects on its surroundings and the light that doesn’t pass the
event horizon that gives physicists their awareness that the black hole
exists.

This project involves the observation of a cityscape after nightfall. The minimal light observed over the city at night masks the flurry of activity that is obscured by
buildings and darkness.

EVENT HORIZON explores the solitary observations of events transmitted via
minimal stimuli and the understanding of the existence of incomprehensibly
massive amounts of activity that cannot affect the outside observer other
than the knowledge that it exists and it is obscured.

In short, it explores the interaction of the subject with the city and the
emotions that come with various sensory stimuli and the contemplation of
what the darkness obscures.

Amsterdam 09.18.2008 – Sound Museum


September 18 2008


Soundmuseum.FM was officially launched September 14th,

ABOUT THE DEPOT / ARCHIVE
The first group of artists targeted was the networks of Remco Schuurbiers and Janet Leyton-Grant. Soundartists from all over the world were contacted with an invitation to contribute to the soundmuseum depot. And the reactions have been amazing. It seemed as though the soundmuseum was longed for, as though it’s filling a need.

Hundreds of artists have sent us works, with more pieces arriving all the time. Barbara Morgenstern, Anne Welmer, Telco Systems, Planningtorock, Carsten Nicolai and many others are working on or planning contributions. We’re looking forward seeing Soundmuseum grow and seeing the depth and quality of the archive build as it continues to enrich itself. This is only the beginning.

“espaceSONO audio.listening.lab”, taking place in Montreal September 2007.
