The Museum of Art, UNH is pleased to present Songs into the Air, sculptures by David Lang, and Expressive Voice: Brought to Light, showcasing Boston Expressionism, on view from January 24 through March 30, 2014 (closed March 7-16). The Museum of Art is located at the Paul Creative Arts Center, 30 Academic Way. All events are free and open to the public.

Songs into the Air

Known for his unexpected and witty kinetic sculptures, artist David A. Lang transforms found objects instilled with compelling personal narratives and evocative histories by animating them with sound and motion to reveal their symbolic power. Lang says, “For the last several years my sculptural work has become largely kinetic and interactive. It is often witty, profound and provocative. Much of it seems to exist in the realm of the unlikely. These days, my mind is in a whirl, trying to understand how to make very complicated things appear to be smooth, slow and coordinated."

In conjunction with Songs into the Air and as part of the Museum of Art’s ArtBreak program, David Lang will hold a public gallery talk discussing the use of found materials in his studio practice and the engineering involved activating his sculptures on Wednesday, February 19 at 12:00 p.m. This ArtBreak program will begin in the Museum of Art, Paul Creative Arts Center, UNH. In the event of inclement weather, the gallery talk will be held February 26 at 12:00 p.m.

 Expressive Voice: Brought to Light

This exhibition showcases Boston Expressionism, a school that embraced a distinctive blend of visionary painting, dark humor, religious mysticism, and social commentary. Expressive Voice: Brought to Light focuses on artists with historical roots in European movements who worked outside of the mainstream of contemporary art, exploring emotion and spirituality with color and imagination. Highlights from the collections of the Museum of Art and Danforth Art will be on display illustrating this fascinating exhibition.

Museum of Art Director Kristina Durocher says, “The Museum of Art is fortunate to own several masterful works by the movement’s preeminent artists, and continues to expand its holdings in this dynamic area. I am delighted Expressive Voice will feature our most recent gifts to the collection, two bronze sculptures of musicians by David Aronson.”

A special curator talk with Katherine French ‘75, Director of Danforth Art, will be held for Friends of the Museum and Alumni as part of the Museum’s ArtBreak series of programs on Friday, March 21 from 5:30-7 p.m. in the Museum of Art, Paul Creative Arts Center, UNH. French will discuss the history of Boston Expressionism and the artists whose shared human-centric philosophy led them to address similar themes in their work. If you interested in attending this event please RSVP to sara.zela@unh.edu or 603.862.3713 by March 14, 2014. Expressive Voice: Brought to Light is generously supported by the S. Melvin and Mary Jo Rines Art Exhibition Fund.

Additionally as part of the Museum of Art’s ArtBreak programming, students enrolled in the dance composition class, under the direction of Gay Nardone, Professor, Department of Theatre and Dance, will interpret key pieces from Expressive Voice into a wonderfully choreographed performance. The performance, Minds in Motion, will take place on Tuesday, March 25, 10 a.m. This ArtBreak program will begin in the Museum of Art, Paul Creative Arts Center, UNH.
