Hear + Now: A Drive-thru Art Exhibition (Presented by TEDxUTAustin)
March 5 @ 1:00 pm - 10:00 pm
One event on Mar 6, 2021 at 1:00 pm
Hear and Now is a drive-thru parking garage art exhibition in the heart of UT Austin’s West Campus at the San Antonio Garage, March 5th and 6th. The exhibition, curated by the Center Space Project, features physical works as well as light, video, and sound installations by seventeen students, faculty, and community artists. Hear and Now is a contactless experience where all attendees must stay in their cars at all times.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected a vast amount of people, and the artist community has been among the hardest hit. Hear and Now explores what it means to be a viewer forced to be physically separated from art. It seeks to restore elements of art viewing that have been lost because of the virtual shift, asking the viewer to be self-conscious of how one may feel deactivated or “muted” in our current circumstances.
