Sound and Kinetic Dimensions Class Exhibition

When: Aug. 4-18 2009
Halifax has its medical school and teaching hospitals. The city also has its art college, or, officially, its visual arts university, with its own network of teaching galleries, including the more recently established Seeds and Portloggia and the oldest and original, The Anna Leonowens Gallery. NSCAD continues to bring in leading contemporary artists, such as Montreal-based artist Jean-Pierre Gauthier, to teach and to organize class exhibitions at the Leonowens. Gauthier's moving (in both physical and imaginative senses of the word) installations won him the Sobey Art Award in 2004. This summer he guides students from conception to exhibition of their sound and kinetic works. This art-making crosses boundaries, offering not only an object to consider but also the material or mechanisms used for its animation. To compare with, and to prepare for, Gauthier's class show, you could check out the Sometimes Always, presented by Centre for Art Tapes at the AGNS (on now until August 30). (SF)
