This lab will present a new commissioned work by Vancouver based artist Gareth Moore. Increasingly he has incorporated a sculptural use of sound in his work, an element which will be foregrounded in his project for the Outdoor Sculpture Collection at WWU. His work has been shown nationally and internationally, including at the CCA Wattis Institute, Witte de With, the Power Plant and dOCUMENTA (13).
PRIMARY RESEARCH LAB will host a series of engagement labs where we will create active platforms for encountering works of minimalism from the collections at WWU. These labs will highlight the physicality of these encounters. Through commissioned works, events, tours, listening sessions and screenings the lab series will contribute a contemporary and sensory perspective on these artists forms.
