The Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood is kicking off a new monthly art crawl, beginning Saturday, August 3rd from 5:30pm to 11pm. I’m teaming up with Mike Kluge (Future Night at Boheme Collectif) to curate an electronic art exhibition at the SNAP Center called “ON/OFF.”
The art community centered around Chestnut Street (near Greer Stadium) has long been one of Nashville’s best kept secrets. The Saturday art crawl is a great opportunity to tour wonderful spaces such as music producer Lonie John Hutchin’s new Cleft Studios, world famous Infinity Cat Records, community makerspace Fort Houston, and galleries such as Ground Floor Gallery, Ovvio Arte, Seed Space, Track One and Zeitgeist Gallery.
For our ON/OFF exhibition at SNAP Center, Mike and I called upon members of the circuit bending and electronic music and art communities to show off interactive installations, reactive video, sound sculptures, flashing lights and things that go buzz.
There will be two live performances. At 7pm and 9pm, artist David Wright LaGrone will perform live dynamic video art with guitar pedals and the Hard Soft Synth 3jb, an innovative lo-fi video synthesizer from Bleep Labs. At 8pm and 10pm, artist and Watkins professor Morgan Higby Flowers will perform realtime audio visuals using a no-input system. The output ranges from dirt-filthy, loud, and stroboscopic to soft, rhyth-matic NTSC rivers.
The participating artists include:
- Zach Adams
- Brains Bailey
- Benton Bainbridge
- Lawrence Crow
- Josh Gumiela
- Linda Heck
- Morgan Higby-Flowers
- David Wright LaGrone
- Andrew Morill
- Adrienne Outlaw
- Luke Rainey
- Stan Richardson
- Liz Clayton Scofield
- Derek Schartung
- Russell White
(Artist list is subject to change.)
And be sure to check out all the other great gallery exhibits.
