Imminent Sounds: Falls and Crossing
Imminent Sounds, following the 2010 Mobilité, sons et formes, is the second collaborative exhibition between the Taipei Fine Arts Museum and Grame, National Center of Musical Creation in Lyon, France. Imminent Sounds presents seventeen video and installation works by around twenty artists invited from the United States, Belgium, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Colombia and Chile, including video pioneer Bill Viola, music video master Thierry de Mey, and founder of the Grame Center, Pierre Alain Jaffrennou.
Works for the exhibition were selected around the themes Falls and Crossings. Falls is a concept seen in the works of many thinkers, writers and artists, and has been interpreted here not only as a physical phenomenon embodying tension and power, but also as related to the natural cycle of rise and fall in life. Programmed in conjunction with the exhibition, performances and forums will be presented that reflect the Grame Center's many years of experience developing new media art.
