Opening Reception: Saturday, April 9, 6:00 to 9:00 pm
Exhibition Dates: April 9-30, 2016

A new sound installation by Alan Nakagawa will premiere at Groundspace Project. The opening is Saturday April 9, from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM.

Mudsling is an emotional response inspired by a six week artist residency in 2015 at the MacDowell Art Colony in Peterboro, New Hampshire. It was Nakagawa’s first group artist residency, first experience in New England, and first experience living in a forest. Compared to his drought stricken home of Los Angeles, this green, lush environment literally ignited a series of artistic breakthroughs for the artist. The sound loop is based on a thunderstorm that passed over the art colony one afternoon. Filled with additional field recordings, subtle frequencies, some folly work and the sound of a marble game by MacDowell staff Blake Tewksbury, Mudsling is a enveloping sound sculpture of nature. While the Presidency campaigns were active in the region, nature constantly reminds us who is still in charge.

Groundspace Project is an artist-run alternative space located just east of the 4th Street bridge in downtown Los Angeles.
Exhibition hours are Friday and Saturday, 1 to 6 pm.
