Upcoming at XPACE

Window Space
The Beat And The Chorus At The Same Time
Artist: Hanna Hur
July 13th- August 3rd
Closing Reception: July 27th, 2012

The Beat And The Chorus At The Same Time asks the question “how do we see?” questioning assumptions about perception through a constructed layering within both images and space.  The title references the famed musician Rahzel, and his ability to sing while beatboxing simultaneously. In the same way that the historical stereoscopic image would align two slightly different images to give the illusion of depth, Rahzel’s ability to break down and distinguish the processes of melody and beat offers an illusion of a multiplicity of voices.  The Beat And The Chorus At The Same Time is meant to deconstruct and reflect on the everyday sensory experience of sight.

Main Space and XBASE
XPACE Residency
Artists: Lee Wiesblatt, Mason Mummery and Krystina Plante
July 3- July 31
Closing Reception: July 27th, 2012

XPACE is housing a Residency for three recent OCADU grads for the month of July, we are very excited to see what these talented artists will come up with! Krystina and Lee are both Printmaking grads, and Mason is a Sculpture/Installation grad. They are using both the Main Space, as well as XBASE as their studios, and have been given 24/7 access. On the 27th they will be showing some of the work they've come up with in their time here. Rumor has it that there will be an art catapult!
