Live From Culture Hole: Rose Kallal
Culture Hole
3816 Commerce Street
Saturday, March 18, 2017

Rose Kallal is a NYC-based artist, working with installation, sound, and performance. Her immersive multiple 66mm film loop installations are created using a wide range of technical processes that span the history of analog to digital media - traditional animation techniques, video synthesis/feedback, and computer animation, along with Kallal's own electronic sound work using modular synthesis. The heavy use of repeating sound and visual motifs in a constant flow of reconfiguration serve to create a hypnotic nonlinear system of both sound and vision.

Sound work released on UK electronics label We Can Elude Control, with forthcoming full-length LP Perseus in March 2017.

B-sides: New Works by The Color Condition
Umbrella Gallery
2803 Taylor Street
Through March 11, 2017

The Color Condition, otherwise known as the Dallas-based duo Sunny Sliger and Marianne Newsom with special contributions from Vince Young, invite us to experience the common and truly extraordinary world around us with their seriously playful fits of imagination.

B-sides is an exhibition of The Color Condition's wildly beautiful sculptural installations that will illuminate moments otherwise hidden - negative space, sculptural pauses and the life of the inanimate mark. Color, texture, and movement inspire these works in a symbiotic collision of intuition and visualization, a pattern language of delight. The installation seeks not only to transform Umbrella Gallery, but to allow the space - its natural elements and people - to transform the art, letting go of control and bringing it to life.
