About Score: Field Work
December 2, 2016 – January 15, 2017
Main Gallery

Art League Houston (ALH) is excited to present Score: Field Work, a site-specific installation by Houston-based artist Ayanna Jolivet Mccloud. Incorporating elements of sound, performance, writing and installation, the exhibition includes work by the artist, together with a selection of women artists, musicians, and performers, whose work question women's role in sound art, and explore the materiality of sound through a feminist perspective. Transforming the gallery into a multi-sensory environment, the works in the exhibition include an installation by the artist of reverberating bells that suspend from the ceiling in the center of the gallery, along with a series of scores and writings by women musicians and sound artists, which span across the gallery walls. Additionally, the exhibition includes a collection of sound featuring audio performances and interviews by women musicians/sound artists. During the run of the exhibition, the artist will present two nights of live performances, readings and workshops by local women artist/ musicians.
