Kinetic Instrument Exhibition at Montgomery College’s Open Gallery

 Montgomery College’s Department of Visual and Performing Arts presents Luminescent Anthologies: Matthew McCormack and Jenn Fig at the Open Gallery. The exhibit opens January 11. A reception follows February 11 from 6–8 p.m. This interactive exhibit features playable sound and light instruments. 

Luminescent Anthologies is the second in the themed exhibition series Interactivity: Sight and Sound. This exhibit consists of futuristic instruments that gallery visitors are invited to play. The instruments produce sound and light when played. McCormack and Figg’s collaborative art investigates the connections between ecology, industry, science, and identity. 

Jenn Figg and Matthew McCormack are multimedia artists who incorporate advanced technology and performance into their practice. They are recipients of a MacDowell Colony artist residency, among many other awards and recognitions. The pair has exhibited and performed throughout the United States.
