Gordon Monahan/Seeing Sound: Sound Art, Performance and Music, 1978-2011

29 October to 11 December

The exhibition looks at 30 years of work by sound and multimedia artist and Mount Allison University graduate Gordon Monahan. Monahan’s works for piano, loudspeakers, video, kinetic sculpture and computer-controlled sound environments hybridize various genres from science, music, performance art and avant-garde concert music to multimedia installation and sound art. As a composer and sound artist, he juxtaposes the quantitative and qualitative aspects of natural acoustical phenomena with elements of media technology, environment, architecture, popular culture and live performance. Organized by the Robert McLaughlin Gallery in partnership with the Doris McCarthy Gallery, Blackwood Gallery, Thames Art Gallery, Owens Art Gallery, Kenderdine Art Gallery, Tom Thomson Art Gallery and singuhr − hoergalerie berlin. Funded by the Canada Council for the Arts, Museums Assistance program of the Department of Canadian Heritage.
