Cooper Holoweski: Dead Air at Brown University

Cooper may2017

New video and sound work by Cooper Holoweski (BFA 2004) is on display in Dead Air, an exhibition opening Friday, May 12 at Brown University’s Cohen Gallery.

Dead Air is a group exhibition featuring works by Tony Bragg, Cooper Holoweski, Martin Smick and Ziyang Wu. Through sculpture, sound, animation and image this multi-media exhibition traces an evolution of consciousness from its primordial origins to colonial narratives and the navel gazing, tech-obsessed virtual reality of the present. Dead Air refers to a moment of time when a broadcast signal goes silent. This exhibition wonders whether it is time to let underlying static become a foundation for new narratives.
