Pioneering sound artist Maryanne Amacher (1938–2009), known for her sonic explorations of psychoacoustics and architecturally staged installations, spent her formative years in Philadelphia. As part of the Center-supported Maryanne Amacher: Perceptual Geographies, Bowerbird presents Maryanne Amacher: An Introduction to the artist’s life and work, with scholar-artist Bill Dietz. Featuring rarely presented archival material, the talk illuminates Amacher’s unique methodology and studio practice.
This event is open to the public; advanced registration encouraged.
Informed by years of research and presented by an international network of artists and scholars, Maryanne Amacher: Perceptual Geographies offers audiences a rare opportunity to experience Amacher’s work posthumously. Performances include Adjacencies, Petra, Supreme Connections on April 12 and 13. The artistic collective Supreme Connections also presents a Ways of Hearing workshop on April 13.
