VOLUME curated SCORES at Lawrimore Project in Seattle May 7, 2009.

The relationship between musical scores and conceptual art is well documented: from early Stockhausen scores and John Cage’s seminal work, to the conceptual art strategies of Sol LeWitt and Yoko Ono, artists have found the idea of the score as a useful tool to further artistic practices. Historically, visual artists have used the notion of the score to transmit a set of instructions for completing an artwork (LeWitt) or in other cases the score itself is the final piece (Ono).

For this exhibition, we have asked 14 artists to participate in this tradition by creating a new visual work that will also serve as a musical score for another artist or musician to interpret and perform.

The artists in Scores include:

Nayland Blake
Julie Davidow
Lecia Dole-Recio
Fallen Fruit
Steven Hull
Tomo Isoyama
Monique Jenkinson
Nina Katchadourian
Keep Adding
Simon Leung
Lucky Dragons
Eamon Ore-Giron
Steve Roden
David Schafer
Laetitia Sonami
