Noise Pop and Hotel Biron Present: OUTSIDE THE CROWD
FEBRUARY 4 – MARCH 3, 2010
HOTEL BIRON, 45 Rose Street
This group show of rock photography offers a glimpse into those intimate moments in which we feel a personal and almost spiritual connection with the musicians who bare their souls for us. These images aim to illustrate the musicians’ artistry and individual personalities through a single still photograph, and share the intimacy of artistic creation with the public.
FEATURED PHOTOGRAPHERS: Andrew Paynter, Ashod Simonian, Charlie Homo, Debra Zeller, Heather Bernard, Jeanne Ellenby, Jerome Brunet, Josh Withers, Paige Parsons, Peter Ellenby
THE ART OF NOISE: Art Inspired by Music
FEBRUARY 19-28, 2010
PROJECT ONE GALLERY, 2525 Rhode Island Street
OPENING: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2010, 7-10PM
With DJ Duserock and live art installation “Drums and Roses” by Ted Riederer with Danny Luehring of Tiny Television
The Art of Noise 2010 celebrates artists who are inspired to create work that traverses the two timeless muses of Art and Music: Lionel Deluy captures contemporary music creators in-camera and morphs them to new artistic highs, Jillian Kogan incorporates elements associated with music (CDs, drugs, lyrics) into institutional declarations of patriotism, Russell Young’s lauded Pig Portraits transform iconic mugshots of musicians into silk-screened symbols of status, award-winning photographer Scott McDermott shares a selection from his Mandela Day series, each image gently pursuing meaning from the eyes and hands of renowned musicians, while Ted Riederer transforms musical performances into permanent pieces of art.
Also, as a part of the Art of Noise show, Noise Pop is throwing two free Soirees . Filter Magazine will host on Thursday the 25th and Terrobird Promotions and XLR8R will be co-hosting Friday night (with music by Shlomo, Ghosts on Tape and Lazy Brow)
