Arrangement for a Silent Orchestra is a painting and video project which explores the gradual dissolution of culture in contemporary society through the symbolic ruin of a personal and cultural icon, the violin. Using the violin as a metaphor, Flagstaff artist Julie Comnick raises questions about the relationship between advancing technology and diminishing cultural heritage. Comnick invites the audience to consider what makes the instrument precious in his or her own experience, and the impact of its loss.
This is a public reception including a violin performance by Julie Comnick at 7 p.m.
Artist Talk at 5 p.m. preceding the reception.
