JAMES HOFF | Opening Reception: Ear to the Page
Ear to the Page explores the interaction between recordings and books, using three categories: sound works that reflect the structure and aesthetic of books; packages that thematically entail a book as well as a CD or vinyl record; and books that have a sound component or somehow serve to transcribe or document ideas that previously existed, or potentially can exist, as sound.
Artists/Musicians participating in the exhibition include: Vito Acconci, Juan Arkotxa & Leslie Mackenzie, Bernard Baschet & Francois Baschet, Cathy Berberian & Eugenio Carmi, George Brecht, Inge Bruggeman & Hank Lazar, Jose Luis Castillejo, Jon Gibson, Kenneth Goldsmith, Grace Jones, Jennie C. Jones, Allan Kaprow, Dan Lander & Micah Lexier, Christian Marclay, Marshall McLuhan with Jerome Agel, John Simon and Quentin Fiore, Michalis Pichler, Steve Roden, Allen Ruppersberg, Tate Shaw & Andrew Sallee, Masumi Shibata, Michael Snow, Jan van der Marck/Art by Telephone, and Dennis Yuen & Morry Galonoy.
Organized by James Hoff and Alan Licht, Independent Curators.
