Our thoughts go out to Puerto Rico during this difficult time.

Byron Westbrook, Talking in Light & Sound

The composer and installation artist discusses his evolution toward creating works composed of an abstract counterpoint between light and sound "events" with David Weinstein during the artist's fall 2012 residency at the Clocktower Gallery. He also discusses his interest in the gallery as a social space in which conversation becomes another element in this interplay. Westbrook is the beneficiary of a recent stint at Bard College's intensive summer arts program and is a staff engineer at Experimental Intermedia Foundation. The product of the residency, entitled Interval/Habitat, is on view through Oct. 19, 2012 with a special artist reception ono Oct. 16.


Clocktower Exhibits & Events


The Clocktower Gallery was founded by the alternative spaces movement pioneer Alanna Heiss in 1972. After a hiatus as a gallery space (after the Sept. 11, 2001 events nearby), the Clocktower Gallery reinaugurated its exhibition programming in 2005 as part of MoMA/PS1 and, after 2008, under the auspices of the newly founded Art International Radio (now Clocktower Productions). Clocktower Exhibits is home to interviews with and performances by its exhibitions' participating artists and curators over these many years.

For more Clocktower history, listen to The Clocktower Oral History Project, in which such figures as Vito Acconci, Bill Beirne, Colette, Jeffrey Deitch, Mary Heilmann, Jene Highstein, Ann Magnuson, Richard Nonas and Joel Shapiro reflect upon their experiences with this unique New York space. Organized by artist Nancy Hwang for the Fall 2009 AVANT-GUIDE TO NYC: Discovering Absence exhibition at apexart. .
