Tomorrow The Henry Art Gallery will be hosting a lecture at 7pm by Seattle based trio SuttonBeresCuller in conjunction with their upcoming exhibition Panoptos, a clever intervention on the ongoing Vortexhibition Polyphonica. Following the lecture the fellas will be showing sneak peak* of the exhibition.
SuttonBeresCuller is a trio of artists (John Sutton, Ben Beres, and Zac Culler) who have worked collaboratively since 1999, when they met as students at Cornish College of the Arts. Over the past decade they have created ways to engage viewers through mobile sculptures, street actions, and temporary site-specific installations that often attract (sometimes unsuspecting) audiences to new readings of and approaches to political, social, cultural, and aesthetic issues. SuttonBeresCuller is dedicated to a form of “public art” that is generous in nature, participatory for the willing, and refreshingly free of dogma for the uninitiated.
As part of the spirited exhibition Vortexhibition Polyphonica, these artists have created Panoptos — an interactive installation that will invite viewers, both on-site and online, to engage with the Henry’s collection in an entirely new way. Join the artists in the Henry Auditorium for a candid discussion on the development of their practice followed by a preview of their exhibition Panoptos in the East Gallery.
Thursday, September 16, 2010, 7:00 – 8:00 PM

*The trio has been working in an “Open Studio” environment in the East Gallery for several weeks now and though you can come by and check out the show – in progress – they will be talking a little bit more about the work following the talk.
