The Golden Record: Far Beyond Our Galaxy

August 18- October 7, 2018
Opening Reception Saturday, August 18, 2018, 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM

The Golden Record exhibition is inspired by the images and sounds of “The Sounds of Earth,” the recording that is now traveling on the Voyager spacecraft far beyond our galaxy, bearing hundreds of sounds, including the Brandenburg Concerto, whales, footsteps, greetings in 55 languages, thunder, crickets, brainwaves, a heartbeat, and “Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground” by Blind Willie Johnson.

The exhibition features works in all media, including sound, video, performance, technology, and science, that reflect on the beautiful and daft hopefulness of this compilation going forth for 40,000 years to be sort of near the closest star.

Curated by Brooke Leeton, Rebecca Brantley, Jon Vogt, and Paula Runyon.
