"The Sight of Sound"
From my review of "The Sight of Sound" at Machines With Magnets:
"The Sight of Sound" is a group show which focuses on the impetus behind much locally-made art: music. Though many artists here make both art and music, and Providence has become renowned for its rock posters, music's influence on Providence art often isn't obvious. So you're left trying to tease out connections between, say, Brian Chippendale's relentless Lightning Bolt drum beats and his obsessive mark-making.Read the rest here.
"The Sight of Sound," curated by Allison Cole and MWM honcho Lauren Holt, is about music as style. It's art — illustration, prints, letterpress, photos, video, sound, and sculpture by 22 artists — that adopts something of music's swagger.
"The Sight of Sound" at Machines with Magnets, 400 Main Street, Pawtucket, through March 27, 2009.
