NEW YORK - MILES McENER Y GALLERY is pleased to announce the group exhibition Sound & Color that will open on 19 November at 511 West 22nd Street and remain on view through 19 December 2020. The show is curated by Brian Alfred and accompanied by a digital publication featuring an introduction by Alfred.

In his renowned podcast “Sound & Vision,” Alfred speaks to various artists and musicians about their creative process. He has found that music often plays a major role in the lives of artists, whether they are active performers or avid listeners. “I have often said that music is an incredible parallel axis to art making in describing and understanding the creative process. They both have their idiosyncrasies, but they share much in the process,” he comments.

For Sound & Color, Alfred has brought together artists who, in diverse ways, represent sound on the visual plane. The exhibition is an exploration of the ways in which artists grapple with picturing sound and its relationship to images, and how artists can use the element of sound to heighten the dynamics of an image.

The exhibition on display continues the art historical tradition of merging aural and visual creativity. Alfred notes, “From Manet’s The Guitar Player, to Mary Cassatt’s The Banjo Lesson, music has always been an artist’s muse.”
