This new exhibition brings together contemporary artists who each create an experience that is focused on the making of sound through materials. The artists in Materials, Sounds + Black Mountain College challenge the stability of materials in their practice. Handmade instruments and electronics, recycled electronic components, outmoded technologies, fake technologies, imagined sounds and silences will form a series of dynamic installations that challenge the way we think about materiality in a cumulative sound experience.

Opening Reception: Friday, June 7 5:30PM - 8PM
