Putting it Together | Installing “Open Score” at USFCAM

We are hard at work preparing for the Open Score exhibition opening THIS FRIDAY! We hope you are all as excited as we are to engage with this highly interactive show. So interactive, that we even have an Art Thursday ‘video arcade’ event planned. We hope you’ll make it to the opening, or an Art Thursday event, before the show closes in March. We’ve posted a few photos to give you a quick peek inside the gallery. Check them out below along with details of upcoming events!

About Open Score
Open Score pays homage to artist Robert Rauschenberg and the first in the series of groundbreaking performance art presentations he titled 9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering, held in 1966 at the Armory in New York City. With its emphasis on the technological aspects of new media, Open Score examines the possibilities these technologies offer as tools for the poetic transformation of reality and the approach to forms of expression in art and daily life. Participating artists include Ingrid Bachmann and Bill Vorn (Canada); Patricia Clark and Barry Moon (USA); Luis Gómez, Antonio Gómez Margolles, and Levi Orta (Cuba); Camilo Martínez and Gabriel Zea (Colombia); and Mariano Sardón (Argentina). Initially curated by Luis Gómez and Dannys Montes de Oca for the 11th Biennial in Havana, Cuba, the Open Score project in the USA is curated by Noel Smith, IRA Curator of Latin American and Caribbean Art, in collaboration with Gómez and Montes de Oca, and is organized by USFCAM.
