Art After Dark – 4/20/2012 | 8pm
This month’s Art After Dark connects the Museum with local Tampa artists as they showcase works that provide community context to our current exhibition, John Cage’s 33-1/3-Performed by Audience. The exhibition allows you to become the artist, selecting and playing multiple LPs to create an overlapping soundscape installation.
Janvrin is a former stained glass artist with a fascination for repeating patterns who recycles records into precise geometric art. Visitors can even ‘listen’ to some of Janvrin’s work — she and Normand will digitize songs from visual arrangements and present an accompanying audio track on headphones.
Craig Kaths’ multi-layered prints draw from analog sound equipment to create a visual lexicon reminiscent of vintage turntable user manuals. Kaths earned his BFA in printmaking from USF and worked at the University’s distinguished atelier, GraphicStudio, until 2009, when he headed to New York City for a stint at Takashi Murakami’s KaiKai KiKi collective.
Music by DJ Brian Oblivion (a.k.a. Brian Taylor, also an accomplished Bay area artist) sets the scene, and everyone can get into the action by submitting kitschy Sleeveface photos to our contest and slideshow.
