Dani Tull @ SolwayJones – solo performance, July 25

8:30 pm

In a rare solo performance, Dani Tull will use vintage Organs and Synthesizers, Guitars, modern technologies and hand-made instruments, to create exotic ambient, polyphonic sound works that intertwine pre-recorded and improvised live musical performance. The set up and approach will be informal, analogous to a casual home-studio session.

Channa Horwitz @ Open Space – Art Cologne 2008

Published by news under events

SolwayJones will present a solo exhibition of sculpture, paintings and works on paper by Los Angeles artist Channa Horwitz at OPEN SPACE 2008.

This exhibition will feature two paintings from the Language Series that began in concept in 1964 (though not executed until 2005). The two works are comprised of multiple groups of paintings derived from a series of pictograms originally created by the artist to function as a language. With Language Series, the artist has created two-dimensional drawings and paintings that are controlled and composed as a deductive logic system, wherein the graph becomes a measure for several different opposing forces.
