Bringing the World to Hanover: Global Contemporary Art

Resonant Spaces: Sound Art at Dartmouth
September 15-December 10, 2017

In the first-ever installation of sound art on Dartmouth's campus, produced in collaboration with guest-curator faculty member Spencer Topel, the Hood Museum of Art will showcase the work of emerging and established international artists with diverse aesthetic and cultural backgrounds. Seven site-specific and sound-based commissions will guide visitors across the Dartmouth campus and into the town of Hanover. Hood Downtown will feature a multimedia display introducing the exhibition and artists, as well as selected works from conceptual artist Terry Adkins (1953-2014). Artists creating new installations for the show include Bill Fontana, Christine Sun Kim, Jacob Kirkegaard, Alvin Lucier, Laura Maes, Julianne Swartz, and Jess Rowland.

This exhibition was organized by the Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth, and generously supported by the George O. Southwick 1957 Memorial Fund, the Eleanor Smith Fund, the Department of Biological Sciences, the Thayer School of Engineering, and the Danish Arts Foundation.

During the museum's closure, Hood Downtown will present an ambitious series of exhibitions featuring contemporary artists from around the world. Like the museum, Hood Downtown is free and open to the public, and open for extended hours. Throughout the expansion project, the exhibition space will allow us to explore exciting new directions in art and new avenues for community engagement.

Join us for social gatherings, talks, and educational programs, and explore an innovative slate of loan exhibitions featuring art in a variety of media. Many of these works by a diverse group of artists will be on view in Hanover for the first time. The exhibitions will be challenging and engaging—and fun—for both campus and community audiences.

The Hood Downtown exhibition space is generously supported by the Charles Gilman Family Endowment.

Hood Downtown is part of the museum's four-point plan for continued programming during the interval of our construction and reinstallation. Join us as we stay engaged on campus and in the community through innovative exhibitions and events.
