Music Program

Saturday, December 15, 1979


Presented at:

The Performing Composer: David Van Tieghem on amplified percussion instruments and videotape of performance. [See also the entry for December 2, 1979, which, according to the early time line kept in a three-ring binder, indicates that Arthur Russell performed on a double bill on this date—12/15/79—with David Van Tieghem. According to the December 1979 printed calendar, however, their performances are listed separately, with Russell on December 2 and Van Tieghem on December 15. Could Russell's performance, originally scheduled for earlier in the month, have been postponed and combined with Van Tieghem's on the 15th?] [Note: Video documentation of a performance by David Van Tiegham, curated by Tony Conrad and documented by Kathy High, is in the Hallwalls archive at the Poetry Collection, a special collecton of the State University of New York at Buffalo Libraries. The analog videos have been preserved and digitized for access.]

Sarah Sutton
Knots and Pulses

This exhibition by Ithaca-area artist Sarah Sutton will feature a series of monochromatic oil paintings that combine representational imagery with distortions and abstractions that create scenarios in flux. They are essentially landscape paintings, but Sutton's treatment of the landscape toys with its sense of space and the notion of the built vs. the natural environment.

Katie Bell
Abstract Cabinet

Katie Bell’s exhibition is a site-specific installation conceived of as a one-act drama starring anonymous artifacts. Functioning like a theatrical set, the gallery holds static characters that reference the interior architecture of corporate and commercial spaces. Sculptural objects are often fractured or untethered to a contextual structure. Functioning as a whole, the individual artefacts are a nod to players on a stage, held captive in space and time.
