Concert | Belly of the Wail: An Afternoon of Music and Readings


The event will feature two live performances of Belly of the Wail: A Score, a musical composition conceived by Smith, composer Tariq Al-Sabir, and vocalist and artist Freddie June. Within Beneath Tongues, the triadic composition functions as another text, a B-side to the exhibition’s forthcoming catalogue, that draws from principles of improvisation and looping to create capaciousness. Its three segments (“The Storm,” “The Belly” and “The Reemergence”) consist of a freedom song written by Freddie June that is continuously stretched and reshaped. The score looks to the essence of wailing, shouting, screaming, inhaling and exhaling, “those things we do with the breath,” writes Smith, that make the unspeakable corporeal, that make life rather than noise. June and Al-Sabir will be accompanied by a trio of vocalists and an ensemble of musicians. Two performances of the score will bookend a series of readings from Duets, a newly published booklet of seven texts commissioned for Beneath Tongues. Featured writers Atheel Elmalik and Rachell Morillo will read their contributions alongside the artworks that inspired their words. Schedule of events:  4PM: Opening performance of Belly of the Wail: A Score 5PM: Selected readings from Duets with Atheel Elmalik, Rachell Morillo and Sable Elyse Smith

Opening Reception | Brian Scott Campbell: Holiday


In varying shades of mottled grays with an occasional orange sun, these modestly-sized paintings, if asked to be neatly tucked into a genre, would have to check the “landscape” box. Yet with each thinly painted brushstroke and bloodletting of color, they gallop out of that stricture. One senses instantly that their maker is not looking at any one environment or lived experience, but instead touching on archetypes and conventions of looking and representation. Campbell uses the basic elements of round suns, rectilinear trees, or triangular mountains and sailboats as easily grasped building blocks. And yet, each careful arrangement swims in a deceptively complex pool of allusions to early 20th century American painters, such as Arthur Dove, Marsden Hartley, Charles Burchfield, and Georgia O’Keefe, run through a cartoonish figurative sieve of Philip Guston and John Wesley. Vasily Kandinsky and Hilma af Klimt’s argument for abstraction’s intrinsic spiritual power likewise apply to Campbell’s work.

Opening Reception | Unbounded: Angels in the Nursery: Ornate Installation


Mark Cooper’s fantastical and ornate mixed-media installation uses visual signifiers to suggest multiple subtexts—from the importance of experiencing boundless joy to addressing the many issues that challenge our present and our future.  The wildly diverse elements of this immersive experiential artwork are composed of an equally colorful array of materials that create the gestalt of the installation. The component parts reference the beauty and unpredictability of nature and reflect Cooper’s diverse influences, from art and cultural history to biology, architecture, and cross-cultural exchange.
