A multisensory experience of space, shape, and sound, this exhibition presents sound sculptures by Wolfgang Gil in the context of the Museum’s collection.

Gil’s installations explore the sculptural quality of sound and create opportunities for experiencing external space and internal perceptual processes. A Venezuelan-born American artist who lives and works in Newark, Gil employs sound as a malleable material with curves, edges, and changing geometries. To explore the idea of sound in visual terms, Gil partnered with the Museum’s curatorial team to select works from the collection to install with his sonic sculptures. Along with three of Gil’s sound sculptures, Sonic Geometries features works by Sam Gilliam, Victor Davson, Sol Lewitt and Richard Anuszckiewicz.

Global Contemporary showcases new work by living artists in dialogue with the Museum’s collections.
