Susan Jennings

Nov 4 – 29
Artist reception and performance
Nov 4, 2023 4pm – 8pm

For this solo exhibition Jennings has created a hanging sound sculpture that is installed in the gallery and a layered sonic video piece played on a large monitor. The two pieces play in together creating a new layer of improvised sound. Jennings will interact with the sculpture and the audience members during a performance event on November 4, during the opening reception.
