In this exhibition, Jonny Farrow and Milad Mozari explore their shared interest in sound as a means of communication and political force while considering audible soft powers. They meditate on two vehicles of transmission; the former the speaker itself and the latter the sound which is being transmitted. Both work intimately in dialogue with their respective regional culture; Mozari currently resides in Chicago and Farrow in Adu Dhabi. Curated by Erin Toale.
Friday, 07.17, 6-9pm
Performance by Farrow/Mozari & friends
Saturdays & Sundays, 1–5pm

A surround-sound reconfiguration of a 2013 work, Haptic's Abeyance explores issues of spatial scale, temporal stasis, and the limits of awareness with a sound palette that includes layered field recordings of empty rooms, subtle electronic textures, and distant piano melodies.
Sunday, June 14, 3-5pm
Lincoln Park Conservatory
2391 N Stockton Dr., Chicago
