Sounding Off

Though her minimalist installations speak volumes (audio tracks are involved in some cases), artist Julianne Swartz will discuss her playful, interactive works during a talk.

Swartz's exhibition "How Deep Is Your" is featured at the museum through Sunday, January 26, and features pieces that ask their viewers to engage with them. For example, Loop (2010) is net of multicolored wiring with speakers dangling throughout its tangles. The sounds pull you into the work in a way a typical painting cannot.

The artist will engage in discussion with SMoCA curator Cassandra Coblentz and the audience beginning at 7 p.m. Tuesday, January 7, at 7374 East Second Street. RSVPs to the free talk are encouraged, but not required, and do not guarantee seating. E-mail [email protected] to let organizers know you plan on attending. For more info, visit or call 480-874-4665.
