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 an on-going “radio broadcast” featuring audio performances and interviews by women musicians/sound artists, along with a micro library featuring texts by women in sound. During the run of the exhibition, the artist will present two nights of live performances, readings and workshops by local women artist/ musicians.
