Wellesley College’s Davis Museum and Cultural Center will feature three new exhibits starting Feb. 24 and running until June 6.
“Something Like Fireworks” is a new installation by Stephen Vitiello, who will be on hand for a gallery talk during an opening reception for the new exhibits on Feb. 24 6-8pm (new director Lisa Fischman will also be there). According to the Davis Museum Vitiello’s exhibit (done in conjunction with lighting designer Jeremy Choate) will feature “field recordings from the Australian outback, the Canadian wilderness, and New York City’s streets, Vitiello’s soundtrack will move between the abstract and the recognizable, attuning us to the subtleties of ambient sound. In this piece, sound will be connected with light and color, creating an immersive synaesthetic experience. The lighting will be designed in sympathy with the audio, and the resulting combination will surround the visitor, altering our spatial perception.”
Also open are two complementary Indian art exhibits: Seeing God in Prints: Indian Lithographs from the Collection of Mark Baron and Elisa Boisante and Painted Songs and Stories: Contemporary Pardhan Gond Art from India. A reception will be held April 7, 5-7pm.
