I am inviting you to Phono+Photo, a panel discussion on the development
of non-music sound recording as an art form.
Co-hosted by the Departments of Sculpture and Sound, the discussion
compares the evolution of environmental, non-music sound recording, or
phonography, to the historical development of photography. Panelists
include Bill Fontana (William and Stephanie Sick Distinguished
Professor), curators from the Art Institute of Chicago, and SAIC faculty
in Art History, Photography, Sound, and Art and Technology Studies.
The discussion happens from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 29.
Location: 120 Sculpture Space, The School of the Art Institute of
Chicago, 280 South Columbus Drive, Chicago IL 60603
Admission free and open to the public. Limited seating available.
Bill Fontana's eight channel sound installation, Kirribilli Wharf,
Sydney (1977) will be running in the lobby.
