Monteith McCollum

Hidden Frequencies

A multi-media performance by Upstate NY musician and filmmaker Monteith McCollum (Hybrid, 2002) uses video projection, sound art and sculpture to explore antiquated processes and technologies. "Mary Wore Jane's So-Called Hat" is the first of three movements in this evolving project, and uses performance of prepared electronics and violin to explore morse code; it is preceded by "Listen" — the artist's film that presents the abstract frequencies and fragmented narrative of shortwave radio.

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings

Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
