With Hidden Noise

June 5 – July 25, 2015
USF Contemporary Art Museum
Lee & Victor Leavengood Gallery
Genevieve Lykes Dimmitt Lobby Gallery

With Hidden Noise is an exploration of sound art that asks museum visitors to spend time listening more carefully, revealing the richness of sound in the world. Titled after Marcel Duchampís ready-made of a ball of string containing a mysterious sound-making object hidden in its folds, this exhibition brings together evocative sounds, some recognizable from traditional instruments and field recordings, and others masked through electronic processes. With Hidden Noise is curated by Stephen Vitiello, an artist who has worked with sound for over 20 years, transforming anodyne noises into compelling soundscapes. Artists include Vitiello and Taylor Deupree, Jennie C. Jones, Pauline Oliveros, Andrea Parkins, Steve Peters, Steve Roden and Michael J. Schumacher.

With Hidden Noise is part of ICIís Exhibitions in a Box series. Produced by Independent Curators International (ICI), New York, this exhibition is curated by Stephen Vitiello. With Hidden Noise is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts; the Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation; the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation; and the ICI Board of Trustees.
