CHARLESTON — The Tarble Arts Center at Eastern Illinois University continues with their online programming.
Opening Oct. 9, “Press Play”
This fall, the Tarble is activating their outdoor grounds with Press Play, a site-responsive digital exhibition of video and audio artworks by Calvin Arsenia, Zlatko Ćosić and Brad Decker, Addoley Dzegede, José Faus, Jana Harper, Megan Kaminski, Marie Bannerot McInerney, Kyle Mullins, and Maura Pellettieri. Groves of trees, architecture, words, music, movement, and art will play together, offering reflections on our sense of place in relation to both built environments and the natural world.
Press Play QR codes and a call-in phone number will be situated throughout the green spaces surrounding the building, inviting those passing through to use their phones or smart devices to experience works contributed by artists, poets, dancers, musicians, healers, writers, and creative voices. This exhibition offers the opportunity to encounter art in an open-air, contactless environment.
All faculty, staff, students, and guests on campus must wear appropriate facemasks. Read EIU’s mask guidelines at www.eiu.edu/covid/masks.php
