Tito’s Prize Exhibition: Steve Parker
October 19, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Big Medium is pleased to present the second annual Tito’s Prize exhibition featuring winner Steve Parker. The solo exhibition will open with a special reception on Friday, October 19 and run through the East Austin Studio Tour to November 18. The $15,000 prize comes courtesy of a donation from Tito’s Handmade Vodka, the Austin–based liquor company.
WAR TUBA RECITAL examines the history of conflict through sound. Combing military artifacts (acoustic locators, air raid sirens, leaflet propaganda of Dr. Seuss, coded radio transmissions, the WWII Ghost Army, and the weaponization of marching bands) with the sonic philosophies of John Cage, Pauline Oliveros, and Cornelius Cardew, items are transformed into tools for awareness, discovery, and renewal.
