Found-objects artist White last speaker in lecture series


Installation artist Angela White will be the final speaker in this season’s Visiting Artist Lecture Series.

Using found objects ranging from material from an old landfill in Brooklyn to rocks from South America, White creates pieces that involve relationships with movement and sound.

Recent works use old turntables, ceramics and bits of glass suspended from hundreds of threads; as the turntables spin, items placed on them bump into the suspended pieces, creating a random concert.

White will speak Wednesday at 1 p.m. at the Eastern Washington University Art Department Auditorium in Cheney, and at 6 p.m. at the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture, 2316 W. First Ave.; and next Thursday at 11:30 a.m. at Spokane Falls Community College, Building 24, Room 100.

The latter event also opens an exhibition of White’s kinetic sound installation, “do something,” at SFCC’s Fine Arts Gallery through May 14.
