About this event
Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts invites the public to two new solo exhibitions illustrating the allusive and enigmatic nature of sound and form, "Alison O’Daniel: Heavy Air" and "Lui Shtini: Tempos," on view April 4–June 15, 2019. "Alison O’Daniel: Heavy Air" Through collaborations with composers and musicians as well as the experiences of deaf and hard of hearing friends regarding sound, O’Daniel’s work aims at building a visual, aural, and haptic vocabulary as a means of storytelling. In "Heavy Air," O’Daniel continues her investigations into what it means to not have full access to sound as well as transfer this experience to a hearing audience. This exhibition places itself at the center of these explorations—highlighting the ambient sounds that literally hang in the air. "Lui Shtini: Tempos" Lui Shtini’s process translates abstracted thoughts into two-dimensional forms, birthing the intangible. In "Tempos," Shtini presents a range of paintings and drawings created over the past four years. The 25 works are installed in the galleries with their peers—grouped together by series. Each of Shtini’s works—both drawings and paintings—are shrouded in a layer of mystery, yet the work is full of hints. GALLERY HOURS: Wednesday 11 AM–5 PM Thursday 11 AM–9 PM Friday 11 AM–5 PM Saturday 11 AM–5 PM Free and open to the public. Free parking available.
