San Diego Art Institute’s “The Language of Things” Opening Reception
January 20 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$5
San Diego Art Institute, a regional contemporary art center in Balboa Park, will host its opening night for a dynamic multimedia installation and curated event series entitled “The Language of Things,” by bi-national artist Roberto Romero-Molino, on Saturday, January 20. Opening night will feature a reception for its members at 6 p.m. and public opening from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Inspiring cross-cultural collaboration in the regional art community, this exhibition is a partnership between the San Diego Art Institute and the Tijuana Cultural Center (CECUT).
A surreal landscape of electronic birdsong and Stonehenge-like arrangements of TV screens, “The Language of Things” is filled with sound and video that changes over time, so that every second during the exhibition period is a unique moment for the show and the spectator. The exhibition takes the viewer deep into the world of perception, peeling back layers of cultural expectation to reveal the wonder and mystery of everyday sounds, images and objects.
The exhibition will continue with a robust programming schedule, including listening workshops with the artist, a coding seminar and live electroacoustic and instrumental concerts including San Diego’s Art of Élan. The exhibition will end on Saturday, March 17 with a closing reception. General admission for the exhibition is $5; discounts and event fees vary. Visit www.sandiego-art.org for more details.
