The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum has just announced the exhibition curated by their inaugural Hall Curatorial Fellow, and it sounds well worth a visit. The vernissage is on 16 September, and the exhibition is on view from then until February 24, 2008. Announcement from the Aldrich follows:

The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is pleased to present Voice & Void – curated by Thomas Trummer, the first recipient of the Hall Curatorial Fellowship.

The human voice has become a major subject in recent scholarly debates, so it is no coincidence that an Aldrich exhibition will explore the topic from an artistic vantage. In Voice & Void, Trummer will utilize the state-of-the-art sound facilities in the Museum’s building to illustrate how voice–and the absence of voice–can be expressed by the visual arts.

With Voice & Void, Austrian native Thomas Trummer, will consider the effects of what happens when one sense is replaced by another, with particular focus on hearing and seeing. Trummer’s exhibition will feature both commissioned and loaned contemporary works of all media by a diverse group of international artists–including a sculptural aviary that will house two living parrots that speak the long-lost language of May-po-re!

Works by Rachel Berwick, Joseph Beuys/Ute Klophaus, John Cage, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller, VALIE EXPORT, Anna Gaskell, Asta Gröting, Christian Marclay, Melik Ohanian, Hans Schabus, Nedko Solakov, Julianne Swartz, and Cerith Wyn Evans will be on view.
