Please join us for a listening event and talk in conjunction with Untitled: Social Commentary—Gustavo Matamoros. We will be convening at 6 pm and listening to Matamoros sound installation. After we will move to a conversation with the artists about the work and his practice.
Born in Caracas in 1957 and living in Miami since 1979, Gustavo Matamoros is a local sound artist of international repute in the fields of experimental music and sound art. His practice focuses on the exploration of sound as audible description of change and as a tool for developing an ever closer relationship with what Buckminster Fuller referred to as The Environment—that which surrounds the individual.
Laura Marsh is a fiber artist with a socially engaged practice. Her banners, weavings, and installations contain feminist and political quotes, mottos, and emblems that reflect cultural values and belief structures. From two generations of women who sew, Marsh practices an accessible and hands-on tactile approach. She invites viewers to enter, touch, and be immersed in the work. Originally from rural, Montrose, Pennsylvania, Marsh has watched her hometown transform into a fracking region. Marsh received her MFA from Yale University School of Art and a BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art. Marsh has exhibited nationally at venues including Locust Projects in Miami, The Whitney Museum of American Art, Printed Matter, Field Projects, Newman Popiashvili Gallery, and Tilton Gallery in NY. She is the Director of Programs at Oolite Arts.
