Articulated Silences

Revealing invisible content

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

How is silence articulated in an era when plot and action define narrative and time, as content is considered invisible? Out of the corner of the eye, this group of artists question and explore personal experiences of time. This exhibition opens a conversation about other ways of telling stories and describing experience that is related to listening, silence and a state of being in-between. The artists included work with time and silence, light and words, on the screen or in space. (L.K.) Participating artists include, Opal Palmer Adisa, Tori Breitling, Sarah Bird, Jana Birchum, Susanne Cockrell, Lynn Kirby, Paula Levine, Mona Nagai and Mary Tsiongas.
