CAPACITY OF VOIDS
New work by SETH SHER & MICHAEL VALLERA
December 1st – 7th
Opening Reception: Saturday, December 1st, 6-10 PM
SETH SHER is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist/composer from Chicago, Illinois. His projects typically involve the use of dense polyrhythmic structures. Recently, he has explored the use of these compositions in installation based works that include elements of video and light. While in residence at the 2012 ACRE session, Sher began his first use of still photography as an additional media in the context of his work. Capacity of Voids will be the first public display of this facet of his practice.
MICHAEL VALLERA is a visual artist and musician currently based out of Chicago. He is one half of the duo Cleared (with Steven Hess) and has performed alongside such artists as David Daniell, Oren Ambarchi, and Rhys Chatham. His visual work primarily makes use of the photograph to explore relationships between formalism, personal narrative, and found structures in the landscape. He received his MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in the spring of 2010.
