News From Somewhere

by Tomek Miernowski


On view May 4-28 during gallery hours: Thursday & Friday, 5-9pm, and Saturday & Sunday, 2-9pm. 

Opening Reception May 4, 6-9pm


News from Somewhere is a multimedia art installation that aims to provoke reflection upon social structures and power dynamics.


Using a touchscreen, the audience selects from a numbered list of societies and is immersed in the sonic results of a social study conducted by five world-class improvisers involved in movements for social justice, each of whom has chosen the sound arts as their primary form of artistic expression. The result is non-musical and anti-aesthetical; a sonic bridge that links the idea of society with physical creative collaboration, mutual aid, and evolution.

Today’s rapid environmental degradation and social upheavals demand new systems. The first step toward a new world is imagining it.
