ICI Conversations: With Hidden Noise at Wave Hill

Wave Hill's Director of Arts & Senior Curator, Jennifer McGregor introducing With Hidden Noise

ICI welcomed friends and patrons to an exclusive reception in Wave Hill on June 8, 2014, celebrating the exhibition With Hidden Noise on view at the park’s galleries. As ICI travels the country and the world, it is always a great pleasure to be able to share our exhibitions whenever they come to New York and offer special behind-the-scenes access to ICI supporters and close friends. This was also the opportunity for many to discover or re-discover the spectacular setting offered by Wave Hill, and let ICI be a guide to a unique summertime experience. Guests enjoyed a champagne brunch before walking to the exhibition space, through parts of the 28-acre public garden overlooking the Hudson River and Palisades. Two artists featured in the exhibition, Andrea Parkins and Michael Schumacher, were present and spoke about their work in a conversation moderated by Wave Hill Curator Jennifer McGregor. 

Curated by Stephen Vitiello, With Hidden Noise is an exploration of sound art that invites gallery and museum visitors to spend time listening with ears they may not know they have. It brings together evocative sounds, some recognizable from traditional instruments and field recordings, and others masked through electronic processes; and at Wave Hill, it plays with the sounds of the park itself and enhances the senses.

The event was co-organized with Wave Hill, and made possible in part by Julia Fowler and Dan Desmond of J.P. Morgan Private Bank.
