I consider that an act of “Making” art is as invaluable as appreciating artworks. In contrast to artworks, this act of  “Making” is a condition that has no structure, no polarity, no sense of mission. It is a process that can accommodate multiple directions. It is a multitude of voices. Artworks, produced as a result of the act of “Making”, have initiated appreciable value, such as beauty. In like manner, the act of “Making” art itself has its own meaning and value even if it may not ‘obviously’ appear in the actual works.

The proposal of this exhibition is to reevaluate the overtones of an act of “Making” via five artists who practice sound in an art context: similar to Action Painting and Happenings in the 50s and 60s. Especially relevant is how they negotiate with sound itself, a distinctive resort.

Elliott Sharp and Matt Sullivan are two (NYC) Downtown Soundscape icons from the ’80s and ’90s who will join us and demonstrate what it means to collaborate (co-Making) with emerging talents, Beatrice Antonie Martino, and Maho Ogawa.

For an artist, the act of “Making” has an apparent magnitude of connotations that are different from the viewers’ perspectives while focusing on the artwork proper. So the audience could also be amplified allowing for the discovering of a given, other ‘something’ from an  exploration of the act of “Making” art.
