At Recess

Closing Reception May 23 6-8pm

Over the course of their Session, Dubbin and Davidson will create new works influenced by the geometries of sound. Funneling, folding and porting sound requires physical structures. Electric guitar amplifiers and cabinets make use of an imperfect architecture for energy, while acting as totems delineating an ancestry of sound amplification. These forms address archaeoacoustics and the pre-electrical harnessing of sound within architecture, while employing the staggered geometries of loudspeaker time-alignment and the slurred voicing of phase cancellation.

About the artists:

Melissa Dubbin and Aaron S. Davidson have an ongoing collaborative practice that combines various media. Recent solo shows include exhibitions at Audio Visual Arts (AVA), New York City (2013), Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, Høvikodden, Norway (2012), and The Living Art Museum, Reykjavik, Iceland (2012). They have exhibited internationally at museums, galleries, and art centers including SculptureCenter, New York; Exit Art, New York; New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York; 2004 Gwangju Biennale, S. Korea; and Moderna Museet, Stockholm.
