Clifford Galley exhibition: Paul Catanese; Century of Progress/Sleep
Christian A. Johnson Artist-in-Residence
Century of Progress/Sleep is a cross-disciplinary opera for voice, electronics, musical saw, sea drum, ship’s bell, tuning fork, and live-cinema scenography. This work imagines that inanimate objects, hyperobjects and hypothetical entities, having recently acquired consciousness, immediately reject rational systems for conceptualizing ‘the nature of things ‘ and instead adopt an intellectual posture of epistemological chaos emerging from mutative half-truths, mischaracterizations of science, and lawless theories of knowledge.
The artist will be in residence February 18 - 26 in the Clifford Gallery, Little Hall, open to the public
